Just emailing to get your feedback on a tentative time for this training. I've set aside Friday March 11, 2005. Will a Friday be okay with everyone? Or is there a risk that people will see this training as a holiday and not show up to make it a long weekend? I'm not suggesting any of you would do this ;-), but I have seen this happen in the past with other groups.
The gentleman who is doing the training works in Boston. He is the Regional Youth Development Programs Specialist with the US Department of Health and Human Services in the Division of Children and Families. His presentation will be fun, enlightening, and very useful in your work. He is willing to tailor the presentation to meet your training needs, so let me know your thoughts asap.
This will be an all day training and limited to 30 people. It is also FREE b/c I know how little money your agencies have out there to spend on trainings. It will be located in Waterbury. Other locations are an option if they are free of charge and can comfortably house 30-35 people. Let me know of any in your area!
The other possible day is March 3, 2005 (Thursday).
The room needs to be reserved by tomorrow so I will have to go with the few responses I get to this email (would have given you more time to respond but I just got this info myself).
Thanks and Happy New Year Everyone!!
