‘Tis the month before New Year’s at Alliance HQ
All the creatures are stirring, there’s so much to do!
We’re prepping the conference with joy and with flair
A sense of excitement’s alive in the air
The sessions are scheduled, the party band’s booked
No box lunch order has been overlooked
And rather than nestling all snug in our beds
Visions of Philly dance in our heads
The conference content is all you have dreamed of
In our host city that crackles with brotherly love
Our elves and our agents don’t find it a chore –
We’re fueled by the thrill of the learning in store!
Saint Nick has come early to us at HQ
And filled up our stockings with sessions for you
Ideas and solutions in every track
Outnumber the presents stuffed in old Santa’s sack
Community Mingles and Birds of a Feather
Could warm Scrooge’s heart in the iciest weather
Birds of a Feather and of course, Stop & Share
Will be back at Alliance – we know you’ll be there!
We’re calling all HEUGers, both naughty and good
To join us in Philly – you know that you should!
The Terminal Market and Liberty Bell
Will be settings for all the great stories you’ll tell
Our closing night party will roar like the twenties
With flappers and music and dancing a-plenty
But Early Bird pricing will fly like a sleigh
On January 10th, so register today!
The Early Bird rates are the best deal in town
For Alliance in Philly – don’t let the elves down!
They’re planning a conference so very inspiring
(that beneath their striped onesies, they’re kind of perspiring)
But you know how elves are, especially at HEUG
Not ones to be lazy or rest on the rug
Like double-oh-seven, they’re quick as a wink
(and sometimes are seen with an ice-shaken drink)
And perhaps best of all, they can give everyone
Just the right mix of learning, teamwork and fun
So before settling in to your long winter’s nap
Open that laptop, and give our link a tap
Get the Early Bird pricing on your registration
And get ready for all the great col-lab-or-ation
And you’ll hear us exclaim, ere you log off and smile:
“Happy Holidays all! We’ll see you in a while!”
