Dear CaribDE Training Participant:
Welcome to the Caribbean Development Education (DE) Program!

It is important to contact us immediately once your flights have been booked with your dates of arrival and departure, the airline you are flying, and your flight number.

We want you to be fully prepared for your role as a Caribbean Development Educator, so we have designed the training session to be packed with information that leads to powerful discussion. In the next days you will receive emails with articles that will also steer your thinking and further prepare you for the thought-provoking discussions that occur during DE Training.
This letter and other relevant information will be posted online for your reference at http://detraining.blogspot.com. The DE Training blog will be continually updated with any information we send you in the future.
Thank you for your dedication to the credit union movement through your commitment to attend Development Education Training. You will be joining a remarkable list of DEs from around the world who share your passion for credit unions.
