Happy New Year!!
With deep gratitude, I welcome back all of our returning CLCA members and offer a very special welcome to our new members who have joined us in 2019. We are thrilled you're here!
We've kicked off the new year with a bang here at CLCA. Thanks to you, we are welcoming two new board members to the CLCA team this year - Jandy Beresford, our new Chapters Director and Raha Afshariani, our new Education Director. Both new Directors currently join us from Ontario, Canada and have already jumped in with both feet at our January board meeting. I'm excited to witness how their support and enthusiasm for CLCA and our mission will contribute to shaping the future of our organization.
CLCA continues to grow. I am thrilled to see our membership numbers swelling again this year. This touches my heart as I've watched this organization emerging stronger from its new birth over the last 4 years and my smile has only grown wider. CLCA takes its commitment to its members seriously and with more members, the organization can do more for you!
Our 2019 conference planning committee is well on their way to bringing you an incredible lineup of speakers, exhibitors, experiences, networking opportunities and hands on workshops you don't want to miss. With the energy and enthusiasm of this committee, we are seeing the Richmond, BC conference shaping up to be an incredible event packed with opportunities for all attendees.
CLCA wants to celebrate you! In each newsletter, we are opening the doors for you to tell us about the amazing, life changing work you do. I invite you to drop us a quick email and tell us about a moment in your own practice, a testimony about a colleague or a highlight story you want to share. We want to feature YOUR story in the next newsletter!
May your 2019 be overflowing with peace, abundance and joy,
