I get a lot of people searching for this! If you haven’t found the information already, let me give you the deets ((Yes, I just said “deets” I am a huge hoser.)).
What: The 2012 International Fragile X Conference
When: July 25 – 29, 2012
Where: Intercontinental Miami in, where else? Miami ((!!))
If you’re curious about what you can expect you can read these semi-coherent posts I wrote about the 2010 International Fragile X Conference in Detroit.
I had no clue!
Apparently this isn’t going to just write itself.
And these much more useful posts by the lovely Kristie Meyer ((Who I got to meet!)) of Life With My X-Men:
What I learned at the Fragile X Conference, Part 1
What I learned at the Fragile X Conference, Part 2
So who’s coming to MIAMI??? You’ve got a year to prime your liver! I’ll scope out the very best bar seats online soon 😉

I’m coming, but might be bringing the whole fam, so I’m not sure how much time I’ll be spending on a barstool! I’ll be on one in spirit though.
We considered bringing Monkey, I mean, can you go to FLORIDA without the kid? But we can’t go to all the conference sessions we want and have him there. He wouldn’t sit through them and he wouldn’t be able to stay all day in the childcare area either…he’d be wayyy too stressed. Someday we’ll bring him 🙂
The Intercontinental? I better start saving NOW!
There will be special conference rates announced later 😉
I have enough Priority Rewards points to get at least one free night…lol Intercontinentals are super nice though. Can’t wait for NFX to post more info.
Nice! The hotel looks very swank. I want to do a raffle, whoever wins gets to pick someone to get dunked in that fountain in the lobby…no one wants to be the dunkee though.
I would like to nominate Holly Usrey Roos 😉
See Holly! I told you so.
Fountain Dunkee.. CNN Hero… it’s just an honor to be nominated!
But it’s way more fun (for someone) if she wins.
I nominate Mike since he’s not on FB for the next 25 days it will be a complete shock and he won’t even know what we are talking about…lol…Shannon – now we need to fundraise even more to get our families to Miami…to help cover the hotel alone…lol
We’ll be there:)
Wait – what HELLO! Shannon Gatewood you nominated ME to get dunked?!?! See Umma THIS is why I kept all I do under my rock with me… YOU let it out and I get put on the block to be raffled to be dunked in the fountain!
hahahhahahaha! Too funny, you know I’d be game!! Total honor just to be nominated 😉
Bring on the raffle and fundraising! I’d LOVE to go up against Mike Makris!! M – you could be onto something HUGE here.
(Personal note, next time can we offer to raffle DINNER at the “Holly table” instead?!?! LOL)
Can’t wait to see you all in Miami!
Tina Makris – I will second that nomination. Of course once Mike is back on FB, I will deny EVERYTHING! In fact, I am going to tell him I tried to talk you out of it…haha
Well.. since you nominated ME Shannon Gatewood I’m SOOO telling Mike it was all YOUR idea! bahahahahaha!
I am looking forward to this conference. It will be my first conference and my birthday celebration 🙂
I think Mike Makris will be happy to take part. We could raffle off dinner at the Holly Usrey Roos’ table too I guess but who loses their seat? I call, NOT ME 😉
I call Not it for loosing a seat as well!
I think I am automatically guaranteed a seat with Holly since I am a newcomer… yeah, that’s the rule…
It just may be Shannon, it got Eric and I seats last time 🙂
I wonder what Holly Usrey Roos’s reaction will be when I ask for her autograph? 😛
Soooo looking forward to the Miami conference!! Last one I went to was in Atlanta in 2006…. Save a barseat for me and my sister! 🙂
