Hello IMATA members! We are looking to see who is interested in hosting a Regional Workshop in 2011. Regional Workshops are a key part of our organization; it gives trainers a chance to come together from neighboring facilities and share ideas with their peers and to talk about the things we love most, our animals and training. Traditionally, these workshops proceed over a day or so. Regionals are an affordable option if one is unable to attend the annual conference. If anyone is interested in hosting a workshop in 2011, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
