It was so busy and so much was happening there really wasn't time to post anything. But, needless to say, it was spectacular and once the photos and details are organized, I'll get some posts up to share the excitement.

I'm here, ready for the opening of this beautiful, new Ideal Org. The excitement is pulsating like waves, flowing out from the new building so that even blocks away, we knew we were in the vicinity of something big about to happen.
T minus 14 hours....

With the Chicago convention behind us, it is time to turn our focus to our own Ideal Org and wrapping up the steps to bring it to reality. The Chicago skyline was impressive but there's no place like home. Looking north on Grand, the Western Auto building is a keen landmark telling us we are almost there- both geographically and chronologically. We ARE almost there--so let's push it home.

As the convention ends, there's music, the Tech Sec of the Chicago Org sings, some delegates dance and there's a little bit of time for sight-seeing on the way out of Chicago.
This isn't an end of a convention, but the beginning of an alliance and a movement that will change the midwest. Powerful forces are now unleashed, operating in unison across the midwest with an unstoppable driving force to create Ideal Orgs.
Watch in the coming weeks because news will spread of the effects of this convention.
And may the midwest never be the same again!
Awards were presented to top contributors to the Ideal Org. Lots of applause and raucous cheering. Cincinnati completed their own fund raising target; can you believe that?! So lots of excitement!
And then everybody was entertained by Jim Meskimen of Jimpressions fame!
Part of the convention has been seminars presented by very experienced Ideal Org makers from International Management and orgs that have actually made it to Ideal. This gives hard data and real-world advice on what it actually takes. Attendees are coming away with great tips and ideas to turn dreams into reality!
Here are pictures of some of our delegates at the start of the second day of the convention. So far, everyone seems quite happy with the data being presented. It looks like the consensus is an Ideal Org in our near future!
A couple of comments from attendees as they start Day 2:
"Good morning! Day 2 of our Chicago adventure. Going to see 'the bean' and then finish the Midwest Alliance Convention. Woot woot!"
"I awoke exuberant about the Midwest Alliance Convention I'm at in Chicago. I'm renaming the Midwest 'The Big Mid' and want to welcome people who have come here from all over the world to help create a region without insanity, criminality and violence. Nothing like this had occurred ever. It is such a strong group!"
And so now, Day 2.....
