Support Group Meeting
Here is one of many emails
I have received that prompted me to put
this page together:
The first thing I want to say is that I am honored
you would ask!!!
Because, during this season of my life, I am accepting only one speaking
engagement a month, it is important that each speaking engagement be
"all that it can be. I no longer do single talks (just a single
workshops) at support group meetings unless the location is within about

little "return." Not that the individuals aren't each
my time is both extreeeeemely limited and extreeeeemely
valuable to me. (Whose isn't, though, right?!?!
I put in a whole day just preparing for it, (not counting the years I have already put in just coming up with everything), many hours into coordinating it and doing up a web page, the bulk of another day (all together) for travel to and from (and all that that entails), doing the conference itself, which is a Friday evening and then all day Saturday, and then all the unpacking and reorganizing of everything once I'm back home.
It's the same amount of work whether 10 people come or 100. So if we are going to put this much into it, we need to know that the coordinator will also do all she can can to get word out within a 3-hour travel radius of the town it will be in. (People have actually traveled many hours to come, and even flown across several states to attend my seminars, but a 3-hour radius is plenty for advertising.)
See this page
for the description of one of these conferences in Washington State!
This is pretty much the same thing I would do for you. We just
customize each one for the group's specifics and the coordinator's
