Astron Road Show
    Ahh...the crisp, cool air, the changing from green to gold or crimson, football: it must be the great month of October. This year, October will be even better since Astron Solutions will be hitting the road, and hitting it hard.
    Our first stop in October will be on the 6th and 7th, where Astron will be exhibiting at the 18th Annual SHRM-Atlanta Conference. You can find Director, Client Services, Paul Hart Miller and Marketing Specialist, Stephen A. Lella here, enjoying some warmer weather.
    The very next week, we see National Director, Michael Maciekowich and Paul Hart Miller at the 2008 Wisconsin SHRM State Conference held from October 15th through 17th in Green Bay. In addition to exhibiting, Mike will also present a concurrent session on Friday morning. Paul and Mike are both looking forward to the Thursday evening event at Lambeau Field!
The very next week, we see Stephen A. Lella and Paul Hart Miller at it again at the 2008 Virginia SHRM State Conference, which will take place on October 22nd through the 24th in Richmond. Exhibiting hours are held on the 22nd and 23rd.
    With so much of the country being covered over the course of October, we will definitely see you on the road!
