September 11th, 2001 – Where Were You?

by Texas Homesteader

September 11th, 2001, a day most Americans were changed forever.  I worked at an international trade association and they held a huge convention each year in September. 

As the Director of Administrative Services, it was part of my job to attend this convention each year along with other executives of our association. It’s a huge amount of work and it takes many hands to assure a smooth successful convention.
