2014 NEASEA 37th Annual Conference
THE CONFERENCE IS NOW IN SESSION
The 2014 Annual NEASEA Conference is being held at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut. This is the first time that Connecticut has been the conference host and everyone in attendance is extremely excited! The Grand Pequot Towers is housing the participants in large spacious rooms and the 10th Floor of the Towers has been reserved for the conference itself. The activities kicked off with SEE Training July 14-15 followed by the President's Welcome BBQ. It will end with a special 1/2 day intensive training program on the morning of the 18th. The session is part of ASSET Training, a series of short intensive programs developed by Carol Gately and Heather Dunn. Carol will be presenting "Creating a Training Program".
The weather has not been accommodating. A fog bank rolled in on Monday and as of Wednesday it is still here. The President's Welcome BBQ was moved from the Terrace to the Premier Ballroom. The western BBQ theme was evident in the red checked tablecloths and sumptuous western fare: spare ribs, pulled pork, braised short ribs, corn on the co, chili and cornbread, several salads and a full array of desserts.
Today the conference begins with Keynote speaker Norm Bossio and then the conference begins in earnest. Title IX, celebrating Student Employment week and hiring internationals. At lunch we will have the Silent Auctions and a presentation from Reliance House.
Look back each day for another chapter on the Conference.
