As a few of us get ready to leave for the SIA 45nd Biennial Convention in Yokohama, Japan, I reflect on how international this organization is and how great an opportunity we have, as members, to travel the globe and feel the unity and community with women from all over the world. I am sure many of us will share our journey on facebook, so follow us there! I will also be blogging from Japan with pictures. I urge you to put an SIA or SI Convention on your bucket list. Yes, it can be expensive, but when else can you travel half way around the world and feel like you ‘belong’ with a large group of like-minded women?! I am really looking forward to it! Join me next time!
