WRIGHTSLAW CONFERENCES AND TRAINING
Over the next few months, Pete and Pam Wright will present programs in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. In January, join us for the From Emotions to Advocacy Cruise (link in this article).
We do not plan, arrange or schedule training sessions. We come to an area because a group or organization contracts with us and takes care of logistics.
Over the past several months, organizations in West Virginia, New Hampshire, New York, Washington, Virginia, California, and South Carolina brought us in to provide training. These organizations were creative in finding ways to fund this training.
Some groups used grants. Some solicited financial assistance from companies, hospitals, medical practices and law firms. In other cases, two or three groups pooled their resources to bring us in. We can help get the word out through our newsletter.
If you think you may want us to do an advocacy presentation in your area or to your group, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org You will get an automatic email with more information about how to arrange training in your area. Thanks for your support!
