Many years ago, Steve Hilton, (then NCECA’s Programs Director) had the idea for NCECA to offer a special session directed at first time attendees.  And he “nominated” me to present it.  It was pretty popular, so I continued to present that session for the next three years I think.  But in that time, I realized that it would be MOST helpful if new folks could get the information BEFORE the conference.  So then, i created a video of my complete presentation and posted it in advance of the conference.  Old versions from previous conferences are still floating around out there, but I’m excited to announce that I have just completed the 2019 Claytopia-specific video, and you can watch it right here.  If you find you still have questions after viewing, please post them here so that I can answer them for everyone.   Or if your question is more specific, feel free to email me directly at I try really hard to respond to any/all emails within a day.
