Hi Princessnana,

We would have loved having you. Wouldn't be great if those events could be broadcast live?
There is an idea. I will try to post as much as I can about the conference.

Thanks so much for your comment.

Hello Glaucia

Thank you so much for sharing this information. The very rich content of the planned event looks very promising and I am sure as many that can attend the event will do all they can to be there. It would be great if you could also post information about the event in the Resource Exchange page as an 'offer'. By so doing, many more community members will get to see it. Please let me know if you would need further guidance on how to go about that. Much as I would not be able to attend, I really look forward to having access to emerging outcomes. It definitely will be great if the event could be live streamed.

Looking forward!
