Hi D21 Members,
On the weekend of November 11-13, 180 D21 members enjoyed an amazing Fall Conference at the Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parksville on Vancouver Island. The setting was stunning and the conference itself was outstanding!
The program was carefully designed and beautifully delivered by our co-chairs, Kristin Nickells and Phyllis Nielsen, and their committee. We had three compelling keynote speakers, Margaret Page, International Director; Arabella Bengson, past World Champion of Public Speaking; and Barbara Khozam, Accredited Speaker. Also, the contests were of the highest calibre with some very funny humorous speeches.
All of these items were critical to the success of the conference but it was the conference attendees who made it such a special occasion. Everyone in attendance was involved and enthusiastic. The feeling from Friday evening through until Sunday afternoon was one of positive energy in all the different sessions. Many excellent ideas were shared and learned over the weekend and I’m sure that our D21 clubs will benefit from what was learned.
Thank you to all D21 members who were able to attend – we look forward to another excellent D21 conference in the Spring of 2017 (April 21 to 23 at the Guildford Sheraton Hotel in Surrey)!
