AAM Annual Meeting

I'm wondering, are there are any ECPNers in Philly for the AAM Annual Meeting now?
If you're like me and can't make it to the meeting, at least we can all live vicariously through the blog or the twitter feed.

One person just tweeted:
"On bus en route to tour a conservation lab. Yes, you only get to do cool things like this at a museum conference."

Sweet, conservation labs are "cool".
