Legal Alliance for Survivors of Abuse Cross-Training Conference
Dear friends and partners,
It’s been 19 years, and our annual Legal Aid For Survivors of Abuse Cross-Training Conference is still going strong! We have an exciting agenda planned for you this year. I can’t wait to see everyone, as well as participate, as we share and learn from each other and from the amazing presenters lined up.
The conference will be held June 5-7, 2019 at the Omni Colonnade Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. We’ve been awarded a generous grant, which will allow us to pay for travel, lodging (generally one room for two advocates to share and one room for executive directors) and per diem expenses for two advocates and one executive director per invited partner or agency. Once you’ve submitted your online registration, Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA), will book two rooms for your agency, which will be paid for directly by us. Registration is now open through the Register tile on this website (http://www.legalaidforsurvivors.org/annual-conference/). Please enter the name of each person attending, making sure names are submitted as they appear on state-issued I.D., particularly if we will be booking a flight!
Our conferences are always great due to the quality of our presenters and participants. The skills and experiences you bring, along with your thoughtful interactions with presenters, attorneys and each other, make our annual conference a true cross-training experience.
Also on June 6, a yoga class (back by popular demand!) will be held at 7 a.m. Bring your yoga mat or, if you don’t have one, just bring yourself. Our class will be fun and designed for all levels. Finally, once again we will have a concurrent executive director track on June 7. The executive director of each agency is encouraged to attend or to designate a staff member to participate.
Please act quickly to register, since our group rates and room block is guaranteed only through May 3. Once your online registration has been received, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If there’s a problem with your registration, you’ll receive a call from us. Otherwise, you’ll get an email with your flight and hotel confirmation number and, for those who must travel by air, your flight confirmation.
I look forward to seeing everyone again. If you have questions, please contact Carmen Hileman or me at LASAConference@trla.org.
