I trust this holiday season finds you well, and that you have have time to spend with loved ones as each of you celebrate the joy of family and the love that binds all of us who share in the human experience together. This time of year is a time of peace, and I hope that each of you is experiencing that peace this December.
I wanted to take a moment and report about the phenomenal job done by Lou Fasulo and his team at Pace during the Regional EATS conference this December. It was a tremendous success, with participants from as far away as California, Florida and Arkansas showing up in White Plains, New York for two days of teaching and sharing. This is the first Regional EATS program we have done, and it went so well we are already considering locations for next year's fall get together!
We discussed how to teach storytelling (the photos below were provided by Bob Altchiler from his great talk):
talked about running advocacy teams (Great session thanks to Adam and Jared):
focused on developing the sorts of curriculum that are most effective in Skills courses
and left with a promise to see each other again this May at Stetson for the National Conference.
I just wanted to personally thank Lou, his team at Pace, to include Michael Giordano, Keith Sullivan, Bob Altchiler, Keri Gould, Bobbi Sternheim, and all the others with too many vowels in their names for me to be able to spell properly! You were phenomenally gracious hosts and your hunger for learning and fellowship made this an awesome and humbling experience. Lou is one of those unique lawyers who understands that this is always a people first business. Everyone there was a joy to work with and we reconnected with old friends, and made some new ones too. Who could ask for more?
See you all in May (and on the competition trail)!
All the best,
