No really – my blogging has been weak of late due to impending conference and annual Paul Ramsey dinner (which is just about sold-out).

But if you are thinking about coming to the Banking On Life conference, just a little incentive . . . Congresswoman Jackie Speier will be speaking as she’s getting ready to introduce legislation into congress called the “Cord Blood Education and Empowerment Act of 2009“. Pretty exciting day of speakers planned.

Hope to see you there!
