Since 1999, Rick's company has sponsored its own national tour. Over the years the content of the tours has changed to reflect Rick's books as well as the most recent software releases from Microsoft. His 2002 tour was titled "The Access/SQL Server/VB.NET Development Seminar." The seminar attracts independent as well as corporate organizations such as Bank of America, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, State Farm Insurance, Prudential, EDS, the U.S. Navy, and Panasonic. These annual seminars provide Access developers, SQL Server developers, and database administrators the information they require to deliver better solutions to their clients as well as helping Visual Basic developers put Visual Basic .NET to use for database applications.
