Hello C.A.R.E. Friends:
Yes...you read it correctly...It's official! Many of you have been asking for this change for many years and we are excited to announce that beginning in 2018, C.A.R.E. will host annual conferences until further notice!
As previously reported, an official motion was made to change the Bylaws to allow the C.A.R.E. Board of Directors to determine the frequency of conferences at the 2016 Spring conference in Asheville, NC and at the 2016 Fall conference in Lake Tahoe, NV a vote was balloted and approved authorizing the Board to amend the Bylaws.
During the Board of Directors' annual 1st Quarter meeting, the Board evaluated economic and budgetary considerations as well as changing member needs and demands. After a thorough review, the Board voted to amend C.A.R.E.'s conference platform to an annual basis. The Board also decided that C.A.R.E. will host its annual conference in the spring season of each year.
This decision aligns seamlessly with the previously scheduled 2018 conference to be held from April 7-10, 2018 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas...a perfect, centrally located destination for our first annual conference!
This is your organization and I'm here to serve you. Together...WE can continue to grow the C.A.R.E. organization! Thank you for your time and support of the Board of Directors while taking the actions and time necessary to reach this milestone decision. As always, I'm available to all C.A.R.E. member representatives to discuss this subject matter or any other C.A.R.E. business you may want to address.
