As always, links to these will also be posted at the DE Training Program Blog at http://detraining.blogspot.com.
On another subject, the training includes an auction - a great event and a terrific way of giving back to the DE Program. That said, we encourage you to bring a checkbook, credit card, or cash (yours or the credit union’s – it doesn’t matter), and most important, bring special items from your country to donate to the auction! We’ll be most grateful for anything and everything you can donate. The more donated items, the more money we can raise for future DE-scholarships and DE-related development projects.
Enjoy the readings. If you have any questions at all, email me at this address. We look forward to seeing you soon!
