Final packing for the IAFP Annual Scientific Assembly: done.

Heading out this morning for French Lick, IN, where I will be cute and charming.  This conference is easy and fun.  The AAFP student/resident conference next week scares me silly.  See, here, students never do anything, so the fact that I'm doing anything at all (i.e. showing up) is a huge improvement.  At the NCFPR next weekend I'm supposed to be a delegate.  And I have a big packet of stuff and business sessions and things and I don't know what delegates do, and I don't want to make a muck-up of it, seeing as how the IAFP is paying to fly me out there and some big drug companies are paying for me to be there at all.
I have a big packet of information, things like "consider polling residents and students in your chapter prior to National Conference for important issues your constituents would like to have addressed", that I don't really know how to accomplish.  Should I e-mail the student listserv and say "Does anyone have anything they would like me to bring to the conference?" or should I be down at the Indy campus talking to people?
Remember, we don't have a FM-SIG yet.  Things like "Assure that members of your chapter delegation attend discussion groups," and I don't know if anyone else is going...And I only became a delegate not so very long ago.

I know there are some friends and well-wishers out there who have experience with this sort of conferences and being a delegate, right?  Any advice?

So, both Turnberry and I know a couple AMA people who will be going (and one who lives there in Kansas City), and if you like, we could get you in touch with them and ask them to help you make sense of it all...

Beyond that, yeah, we normally send email to our school listservs saying "Hey, here's the items of business, anyone have any comments?"

That'd be nice. I feel like I'm going and don't really know anyone anyway, except the obligatory husband, who doesn't really count as a contact :)
