    3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC)  

    1. New Projects: 

      We have secured Dr. Caprice Hollins to do a full day online live conference on April 30. Her fees are $7,500.  We will offer a half day (4 Ethics CEs)  or full day option (7 Ethics CEs).   Three of us have attended her conferences and agree that she is the best presenter we've heard and that we learned more from her about anti-racism, cross-cultural communication, and social justice than anyone.  See her link for her TedTAlk  https://www.culturesconnecting.com/about-us .  

      We decided against an in-person conference because 1) Would we be able to profit enough given the high overhead (venue, catering) if in person attendance is low due to COVID? and 2) we don't have anyone with time to chair/organize such a conference.

    1. New Projects: 
      1. Business Partnership Agreement - great plan but needs refining. We have “discounted” and “reduced rates” as incentives but need to be specific. From the Conference committee: pricing of conferences -do we translate “discounted” and “reduced rates” to a specific percentage or do we give a number of free admissions? Marketing: banner advertising, logo recognition and link on website - is that possible on our end and what is that worth to a business? General: introductions at conferences, vendor tables, logo on specialty items at conferences, complimentary membership
    2. Update of Progress: EC wants me to meet with HMHI but until the above levels out, I have nothing to present to them
    3. Items for Vote:

      3. Membership drive: concurrent to conference (side-by-side cost graphic/what saved)
    2. Update of Progress:
      1. Marketing: Working on advertising for conference in April, almost finalized
      2. Public Relations: Will send out Facebook, IG, and LinkedIn ads to membership soon promoting conference and keynote speaker

    3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC) Update of progress  in board

    1. New Projects.  The EACC met on 11/11/20 to discuss the spring Annual Conference.  We decided to offer an 8 hour online conference, due to COVID-19.  We intend to invite presenters whose proposals were accepted for last year's cancelled conference.  We are exploring online conference platforms such as HopIn, which allow for fluid networking and movement among "rooms".  We hope to subsequently post conference recordings on our website for 'on demand' CE credits.  To power that, we are exploring software/services that automate the administration of exam and CE certificates.  We will purchase a DOPL email list in January to promote the event. We would like to pay the person/s who administer the conference  (e.g. registration, certificates) and will build a budget for that by February.
