May Membership Meeting and Dinner

Join DCACP for the presentation, Looking into The Future of the DC Collaborative Community: Where From Here? Presenters: Lisa Herrick PhD will facilitate a multi-disciplinary panel of our community members Periodically DCACP reflects on our evolution since 2006 when we founded our practice group. Recently, a few core members of our community either announced their coming retirement, or already sailed off into their next chapter. Meanwhile, fortunately, several younger, newish members have sunk roots into our community, have jumped into responsibilities and new cases, and are steadily morphing into being integral people in our practice group. Reflection on growth and development can provide us with opportunities to take pride in our accomplishments, and develop visions for our future. So this program will give us a time to do just that. This program will be more facilitated than taught and will encourage everyone who attends to speak up about their observations, hopes and ideas for the coming decade of DCACP. 5:45 – 6:30 — networking 6:30 – 7:45 — program and dinner* *The program/dinner fee is $40.  There will be a bar open where members can purchase drinks for an additional cost.
