It would also be helpful to have a one- or two-hour orientation session for
first-timers.

I haven't attended a national conference yet and plan to attend NGS in Salt
Lake City this coming year. I have been researching nearly 15 years and
would consider myself an intermediate researcher.  I am better at some
records (especially late 19th century & 20th century) than others (before
1850).  I am looking forward to hearing from presenters that I have been
reading about all these years.

Wouldn't it be helpful for beginners to have a special track for them such
as on one day?  We have done this at model railroading conventions.

A very good point, Barbara.  
 
It may also strengthen my conclusion that national conferences, as a general
rule, should be targeted more toward intermediate and advanced levels of
expertise.
