    Dear Association Executives:

    We would be grateful if you could help us spread to the word to your members about an exciting new series of Special Interest Groups, which are designed to unite National Council members around areas of expressed interest throughout 2020.

    Our pilot phase is launching next month and will include the following groups: LGBTQ+, Children and Families, Older Adults, and Intellectual and Developmental Disorders, with the potential for more in the future.

    Special thanks to Paul Curtis for agreeing to Co-Chair the LGBTQ+ Special Interest Group. 

    How will these groups work? Each group will be facilitated by a National Council staff member and will offer knowledge-boosting opportunities, including:

    • Regularly published content designed to educate and inspire.
    • Webinars offering clinical or practice insights specific to each group.
    • Check-ins with subject matter experts to further the conversation.
    • A special networking opportunity at NatCon20 with your peers.
    • A platform for sharing your thought leadership, insights and ideas.

    This is more than just a member benefit. It's an opportunity to stay on top of – and inform – trends, best practices and what's working in the field. And it's a chance to connect with like-minded people.

    Interested in participating? Get started by attending an orientation webinar for each group that will review our efforts and set expectations for the new year ahead. Mark your calendars for these Special Interest Group webinars:

    If you cannot attend a webinar but are interested in participating in one or more Special Interest Groupsplease let us know and we will add you to the "interested" list.

    We remain committed to giving members new opportunities to learn and grow. This initiative is just one more way we are investing in our communities and the lives of those you support.

    Happy Thanksgiving - Chuck
