Conferences, Symposiums, and Presentations

I hope you enjoyed Labor Day holiday weekend.  I went to visit my daughter in Sacramento and we enjoyed our time on the American River.  We went kayaking and stopped in old Sacramento for Gold Rush days, saw a Wild West show, Indian dancing, and watched a magic show. Afterwards we kayaked back down the river to my daughter’s apartment.  I really had a fun time and it was very relaxing. Now it’s time to focus back on work and the last quarter of the year.  I wanted to alert you to the peer presentation for the 2018 CAMFT annual conference.  The deadline for proposals is January 23, 2017.

The committee is especially interested in presentations on substance abuse and addictive behaviors. I presented at a couple of conferences a few years back. It was an enriching experience and I enjoyed meeting many colleagues from around the state. It actually can be a fun experience. Please also do not forget to register for the upcoming 2017 Annual Conference.  Sign up soon because spaces are going fast and some of the workshops are already sold out. This conference will be held at the Hilton in Los Angeles.  Additionally, there is another wonderful training opportunity coming this fall: CAMFT’s fall symposium November 12, 2016 at the San Ramón Marriott.

The IE CAMFT Board needs a few extra hands to help with setting up the room prior to the meeting and putting the room back after the meeting. If you can help, just show up about 45 minutes before the seminar and stay after the meeting to help. All members are also welcome to stay for the board meeting after the educational part of the meeting is over.

Are you or your office putting on a training, have a new workshop starting, a yoga group forming, or have a teen group going on in your office? Whatever you are doing let us know about it. We now have a resource table out in the lobby so be sure to stop to see what your fabulous colleagues are doing. Please bring your flyers and other support resources and share. It is difficult to stay informed about things in our communities so please share.

Reminder:  the IE 3000 club date is the third Saturday of each month. The next meeting will be held on September 17, 2016, the speaker will be Sherilyn Johnson, from County of Riverside Mental Health. She will be speaking on EMDR. The time will be 11:00 to 1:00 PM.
