Hi Folks:

When I talked with Margaret Ellwood she indicated that the idea of
combining the conferences was discussed and that some centers were
concerned that they would have to close.  If the conferences were held
separately, some staff could go to each one.  Thoughts on this?

Subject: Conferences

Dear State ABE Colleagues:

It has become evident that the State ABE and Wyoming Lifelong Learning
Association (WLLA) fall conference schedules are creating an issue for
some of us.  Our institution highly encourages faculty professional
development and provides us with resources to attend conferences and

This year, the State ABE conference is scheduled for Sept. 27 and 28.
The annual Pro-Literacy Conference is scheduled for October 5 -7 and
WLLA is scheduled for October 12 and 13.  It would certainly be easier
for us, and I'm sure many of you, if we could consolidate some of these
events so that ALL of our staff can receive Professional Development
credit and/or present at these conferences.  It is much easier for our
students to have our Center and Outreach Sites close only once compared
to multiple times.  Since the Pro-Literacy Conference is way out of
Wyoming's hands, is there any way WLLA and the State ABE planners can
work together to better serve the state's ABE instructors?

I realize this issue is still months away; however, many of us leave for
the summer and September will be here before we know it!
Thank you,
Kelsee Miller
