Hello my national and international Community Education colleagues and friends.
My name is Bob Wittman, and along with Bridget Gothberg, am a co-chair for the upcoming 2017 Summer Institute for Community Education and Engagement. You are getting this email because our planning team has identified you as a current or former community education leader in your respective state and someone who has not yet attended a Summer Institute. I know most of you are now retired, but we wanted to make sure you have all the latest information on the upcoming Summer Institute.
The 5th Annual Summer Institute for Community Education and Engagement will be held in San Antonio, Texas on July 9–11. This year we excited to partner with the Texas Community Education Foundation, which has been added as one of our key sponsors. It is great to work with our Texas colleagues once again.
The Summer Institute has emerged as one of the ways we have kept the national and international community education community connected, and the national and international community education conversation alive, relevant and impacting. For those who are not familiar with The Summer Institute for Community Education and Engagement, I’ve attached an overview of the Institute as well as this year’s schedule for the three day experience.
We are hoping you consider joining us this year in San Antonio along with others from around the country. Registrations are being taken by our host organization, The National School Public Relationships Assocation (NSPRA) at NSPRA.org/Seminar. Go to registration and look for Community Education. If you are planning on coming this year, we ask that you please let us know so we can add you to our participant data base.
We are also asking for your help getting the word out and sharing this information with your colleagues. The most difficult challenge is getting the word out to people and sharing this invitation to join us. Your help in getting this information out to your network would be greatly appreciated. If it would be OK with you, we’ll continue to provide you with a few more email updates over the next month as more details are announced. If not, please just let me know. Thanks in advance for your help.
Thanks everyone. I hope this email has found you all well and enjoying life. It would be great to see you in San Antonio.
