Trauma Recovery/HAP Newsletter
July/August 2017

Are you ready to get away from the same-old, same-old? Then you're ready for the 2017 EMDRIA Conference being held from August 24th - 27th in Bellevue, WA. Let the countdown begin!
Join us and other EMDR professionals for 4 days of informative programs, exciting events, and interesting conversations.  Connect with the volunteers, donors and friends who support the mission of Trauma Recovery/HAP, as we all learn from their experiences and insights.
We're also hosting a number of activities for our volunteers and donors. Our team is busy, finalizing our plans for a variety of singular events.   
Plan to take part in our Annual Trauma Recovery/HAP Fundraising Dance after The EMDRIA Awards Dinner on Saturday, August 26th. We're working on something different this year, so expect a surprising, fun-filled evening! All proceeds from the fund-raiser will be donated to the Francine Shapiro Fund for our organization's disaster recovery efforts. Tickets are available at our booth and at a discounted rate at the Awards Dinner.
Visit our booth, where you can learn about the latest events in the field, pick up brochures and flyers, purchase products from our store, receive free gifts, and enter our raffle for wonderful prizes. But most of all, come to our booth and meet our dedicated staff.  Access their photos and bios below so that you'll know who we are.   We all welcome the chance to speak with you about your ideas and experiences, so stop in. And let's talk!
It's now August 10, and counting! So watch your email for additional information on our programs and plans.  I look forward to meeting all of you during the conference.

All the best,
Carol R. Martin
Executive Director
