Our Board members plan to host several more workshops in the coming months so that all our members can have the opportunity to meet with other members close to their own geographical areas, and develop a more effective network for learning. We'll keep you posted on events in your area! If you have ideas for speakers or workshops, please contact one of the board members with your idea. These mini-workshops will replace the spring conference.

We also have an AMAZING Fall conference in the works. Mark your calendars for the weekend of October 26th & 27th for speakers and a comedian who will knock your socks off!

Are you coming?

  4. It sounds like a great event, but it's too far from me and it's April - lambing season. :) I hope to make one of these events in the future.

  5. I am so bummed I can't come. My hubby and I are going to an amazing retreat that weekend.
