Conference

Hi Emily,
I posted the same conference last night and receive a response from a woman in Africa that would love to attend it. So I thought, wouldn't be great if we could broadcast it live? Nevertheless, I promised her that I would post as much as I could.
Are you attending it as well?
Love

Hi Glaucia!

I agree this would be a fantastic conference to broadcast live as a resource for our global community. Great thinking! I know the World Affairs Council of Oregon records and makes publicly available their speaking events. I will reach out to them to see if there is a similar plan for this event.

And yes, I'm thinking about going. How about you? It would be fun to go together!

Love,
Emily
