ECGS Committee Meeting Minutes 10/9/2018

9 Oct 2018 8:10 PM | Jim Macedone (Administrator)

1. Summarize feedback from Fall Mini-conference in terms of "lessons learned" for Annual Conference Planning


  • Limit time to people who monopolize time
  • IPI: need more involvement from the panel, less from main speaker

2.  UMHCA annual conference Planning

Location:  Not Argosy nor U of P.  U of U or WC?  Costs?

  • Westminster will be Fall conference
  • UofU will be Annual Conference

Dates:  April or May?

March 22-23, but checking on UofU availability with Uma (Ellen will check)

Theme?:  ACA and AMHCA don't use themes

  • Want to do a theme-less conference or focusing on "clinical practice."
  • Paul suggested we do a separate conference on Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT) or emotionally-focused couples therapy. Paul has a connection for guest speakers. Possibly a pre-conference? It is a two-day presentation. We would be sharing some of the revenue with NASW if we went this direction. Ellen asked for a cost estimate. Possibly in May and promoting it at the annual conference.

Call for Proposals posted soon?

  • Require that one presenter is a fully-licensed clinician so that every session can be available for CE Hours.
