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 .  

    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.

4. Professional Partnership & Associate Partnership Committee (PPAC)

  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
