Notes from IBDEA Headquarters

Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be working for you and alongside Lenette. The transition has been going smoothly, and best of all, I’ve made some great new friends and am looking forward to meeting many more. We’ve been hard at work on the 2022 Conference, which will be March 3-7, 2022, at the Caribe Royale in Orlando. I hope to meet ALL of you there. It’s so fantastic to be having an actual in-person event! We promise to make this one that you won’t forget! Registration will be open soon, so grab that early bird registration while you can.

In this newsletter, you will find details on our upcoming schools in August and November and so much more.

Reminder, please add the following emails to your address book to not miss out on any correspondence that may filter to your spam folder.
