The AHA staff is only 4 1/2 people and there's no way they could do it without clubs.
I just want to add that as few as 4 1/2 staff is, it still appears like more than it actually is. They all have other duties that don't include all of the details that need to go into planning a successful conference. For example the 1/2 is Jill, the editor of Zymurgy, and I'd like her to keep doing an awesome job with that.
hope to pay them back by helping out in Seattle. Hey, Tom here's a sucker...er, volunteer for ya!
