Re: April 5 conference program

I'd like to wrap up the day by doing a 10-minute overview of what other communities across the U.S. are doing, and then issue a challenge to the conference participants to make Yolo County the first trauma-informed county in California. What do you think?

I added Cherie Schroeder's layout to the end. Don't worry about the text in there...it's the original. Just OK the layout. And once we get the text set, then Cherie, will you copy and paste and send a version to Gail, so that she can print it out for her meeting on Wednesday? I can send a version to Shaunda for the Feb 4-5 workshops. -- J.

I think we should change it to "registration optional" because most years had people who wanted to register even though they didn't want CEU's. They mailed in the registration form even though it said "no registration". When I told them they didn't need to, they always explained that they wanted to make sure they had a seat reserved. What do you think?

Something very important: we are required to put the IVAT logo on all marketing materials. I put it on my version of the flyer, in the bottom corner, and changed the bottom line to "Co-sponsors include Yolo County CASA and IVAT" followed by the logo.

Kate Snow ·
Hi Bonnie & Gail--I'd love to donate but the empoweryolo donation page does not inspire confidence. It pre-loaded Gail's email (and asked me to click a button to change it). It's not HTTPS and says "Page not secure". Do you know if they have a better, more secure donation mechanism? Thanks for all you're doing.
