Mark your calendars for March 16, cheap 2012!
That is the date of the Community Caring Council’s Annual Conference. The topic this year is “Raising Emotionally Healthy Children” based on a book written by Gerald Newmark. Tentative plans include combining this conference with the annual We Care About YOUth Conference sponsored by the Parent and Community Education Committee. A speaker has not yet been confirmed.
The Conference will follow the usual venue on Friday from 8am – 4pm at Dempster Hall on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. The targeted audience will be professionals who work with parents and/or youth. Sessions will continue Friday evening and during the day on Saturday, targeting parents, foster parents, child care providers, and other caregivers.
Stay tuned for more details.
