We are very excited about our Fall Educational Conference this Friday, October 14th.

 

To be held at Mayo Clinic Waugh Auditorium, 5777 E. Mayo Boulevard, Phoenix, AZ 85054

Check-in opens at 7:30 AM; the conference is scheduled from 8 AM-5 PM. We will be offering continental breakfast, lunch, and a snack included in the conference registration fees.

 

If you haven’t had a chance to register, there’s still time, and we hope to see as many of you as possible. We’re offering 7.5 CE hours this year, and that’s not counting some of the other surprises we have in store for you.

 

Our speakers will cover a wide range of topics (yes, including some staging discussion) and we’re putting together a full day of education. Come for the learning, come for the socializing, come for the food, but above all, please DO come.

 

You are cordially invited.

 

For the complete schedule of speakers and topics and for driving directions to Mayo Clinic, see the Events page on our website.

After tomorrow, Regular Registration pricing will apply through THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13TH
 
If I can make one more small plea: 
 
CONSIDER JOINING THE BOARD
 
We’ve all got experience and knowledge to share, and the best way to get your voice heard is to run for office. While the CTR is required to run for president, there are plenty of positions that don’t require certifications. Whatever your background, we can work with you to find a position that you can make a valuable contribution to. 
 
If  you’ve served on the board before, each year is different and I have no doubt that our President Elect, Daniel Garcia, has exciting plans for 2017. 
 
What is the commitment, you ask? 
 
Not much, actually. We hold our meetings via once-a-month phone calls. 
 
If you’re interested in running for the CRAAZ Board, contact our past president, Iris Castro, at Iris.Castro@ctca-hope.com.
 
All my best to you, 
 
Juliet Wilkins 
2016 CRAAZ President
