Katie and I had a great workshop with our Virginia Beach instructors!  Thank you all for giving us another shot - minus the hurricane!  Best wishes and keep us posted on your capacity building!

Go Louisville, KY!  Thanks to all the wonderful instructors who made this day so fun and informative at the Seelbach Hilton!  No ghosts in our picture, but we had a great time talking about building capacity in our students! Keep us posted fellow Capacity Coaches!

Thank you for coming to Columbus! I had been watching the cities you were hosting the workshop in and was so excited to see you had added the workshop in August. It was great and we have implemented some of your suggestions into our classes! Hope to see ABMP workshops in Columbus again soon!

Thanks to the educators in Madison, WI for hosting a fantastic workshop in Badgerland!  Kathy & I loved hearing about all of the creative ways you're helping your students succeed and hope you enjoy the benefits (for you and your students) of capacity building!

Brian and I had the privilege of bringing the Instructors on the Front Lines to the Ohio Council of Massage Therapy Schools this past Friday!  Wow….what an impressive group of educators and administrators!  Special thanks to Karl Meyer for inviting us and to everyone for making us feel so welcome.  Your sharing of ideas was inspirational! 

Our next event will be August 26th in Virginia Beach, VA!  Good thing it’s no longer Shark Week!  LOL

Special thanks to a wonderful Seattle group of instructors joining Cindy Williams and I, despite the beautiful sunshine outside!  Now that's commitment to student success and we loved spending the time with all of you!  Look forward to seeing you next year and talking about critical thinking skills!

Thanks for sharing, Kathy!  I'm so happy to hear that our ABMP student and instructor resources have worked for you in your classroom.  Let us know how we can continue to support you and your students.  We're looking forward to hearing how the new exercises and tools work for you - have fun!

Kristin & Kathy, thanks for a great workshop in Detroit.  As a business instructor (now called Professional Development classes at our school) I've been using resources from the ABMP website for more than 2 1/2 years now.  This workshop sparked some ideas in me and I'll be adding some new active interaction exercises into my classes.  I always encourage my students to think outside the box when marketing themselves, I thank you for reminding me to do the same!

Katie and I had a great time with our New Jersey area instructors!  Thank you all for taking the time to explore some new information and resources around building our student capacity!  We look forward to seeing you next year!
