Time for a Little Fall R & R at the SIETAR USA National Conference
While I hope you leave feeling rested and relaxed, I am thinking of a different type of R&R.
Fall has always been a time of reflection and renewal for me. Reflecting on the end of summer (a big moment for those of us in northern climes) and reflecting about what the new school year brings. What forms of renewal, new learning, and retooling will I discover?
This year, I invite you to embrace this idea of R&R as you head to Atlanta for the 2019 SUSA Conference. There will be many opportunities to reflect on your role as an interculturalist and where you are on your personal journey of development and renewal.
Look through the program schedule and see where there are sessions that might introduce you to a new perspective or help develop new tools to employ in your work, life, family, and community. Think of the splendor of fall color as an array of all that SIETAR has to offer. Brilliant colors, crisp fresh air, an invigorating step, an abundant harvest. Yes, there will be plenty at the SUSA Conference for making this fall in Atlanta the best Fall R&R you can imagine. Embrace the change - what's around the corner for you?
See you there!
