Got home yesterday from …
What a great time!
There are so many others who worked together to make this weekend a success, I would be sure to miss more than I could name. (See the Write! Canada website for bios of the staff and faculty and for faculty interviews. There are several more volunteers, however, who are not listed.)
There was a lot of talk about teamwork over the past three days, and that’s what any great event is about.
Last year, I volunteered at the conference for the first time, and I promised myself I’d never go again without doing so. It is so amazing to be a part of the team.
Among other meetings, I attended Steve Laube’s continuing class and Thomas Umstattd Jr’s workshop. Thomas Froese took on the challenge of being the last keynote speaker. As the music leader said after his presentation, “Is it possible to be exhausted and thoroughly energized at the same time?” The answer seems to be yes.
I am so very thankful for the Cyber Age. I can follow friends and professional contacts throughout the year.
How about you? How are you taking advantage of the Internet to develop friendships and network with others in your profession or areas of interest?
