Let's get all the folks interested in modeling into one room at the same time. We can talk about where we've been and where we think the future lies. It will be an excellent chance to meet and greet, face to face, with the people we generally only see on the internet the rest of the year.
Critics are welcome too. See if you can add a credible sounding addition to the long list of reasons that modeling is unbearably stupid. This is your chance to show the modeling zealots the errors of their ways.
