Happy summer to all!!! We hope you enjoy some rest and relaxation in our beautiful Ocean State or elsewhere with family and friends. We will be working on the 2015 conference presenters. Please let us know if you know any speakers or are interested in presenting. The goal of our annual conference is to present valuable continuing education to RI SLPs and also to provide a venue to gather with your colleagues in a professional environment. RISHA’s goal is not to make money on this event but we try to break even. Our 2014 conference had the lowest attendance to date. RISHA has reserved the date of March 28, 2015 for the 2015 annual conference at the Crowne Plaza.
We need volunteers to serve on the Conference Committee. Please contact Dora Arsenault if interested in helping out.
WE NEED YOU!
Please consider volunteering to serve on a committee or run for office. Please contact Dora Arsenault or Ellen Connery for more information! Please consider presenting to the membership for CEUs. You may earn CEUs for presenting. We need individuals to present in 2014– a 2 hour, 2.5 hr. or 3 hr. presentation. RISHA will arrange a location and take care of registration. Please volunteer to share your knowledge with your colleagues in RISHA! Please contact Dora Arsenault if interested.
RISHA Private Practice Directory will be posted soon……………….It is a work in progress!!!! Keep checking back!
