It was great to be in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday this week for the return of the live version of the annual PLUS D&O Symposium. I am certain I was not the only one at the event who was delighted to be among friends and colleagues again and to meet so many new people. In one sense, it was a little awkward for everyone, since it has been so long since any of us have been around other people. But with appropriate precautions in place, everything went well and it was just fine being in a large gathering again. My congrats to the Conference organizers for putting together a great conference and to the PLUS staff for putting on a great show.
For myself, and as it turned out to be the case for many of the other attendees, this was my first domestic business trip since the last time the PLUS D&O symposium was held live in New York, in late February 2020. Although at one level, it did seem a little odd to be back in an event like this after the long lay off, in other ways it seemed like no time had passed at all. I hope the success of this event, as well as the great turnout, signifies that it may be time to start the process of getting back to normal again. I will say that it was a lot of fun being back in New York again.
