An advantage to being at a conference with 1300 peers is there's always some story that makes other association management situations seem not so bad.
We all know hotels from time to time accidentally assign a room when someone else already occupies it. And the room key can open the door.
At a recent conference a male association executive had taken a shower, and was shaving in the bathroom - nude. His room was accidentally assigned to someone else, who opened the door, walked in with her luggage - and had complete view of bathroom. Notable detail: it was his female president elect.
Today's tip: It can be worthwhile to put out the "do not disturb" sign anytime you're in the room.
