This article is from Honey Sheff, a Dallas-based mental health professional, a board member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, and the director of this year’s 9th Annual Collaborative Law Course (Understanding Collaborative Divorce Inside & Out – More Than Just the Process), co-sponsored by the State Bar Collaborative Law Section and the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.
This is a personal appeal from me to all my colleagues out there. Perhaps you are a seasoned collaborative professional or perhaps you are newly trained. Perhaps you know about collaborative law, but haven’t had any training. Or, perhaps you have simply heard of collaborative divorce but have no real understanding of what that means. You may be a mental health professional, an attorney or a financial professional. The upcoming Collaborative Law Course on February 25th and 26th at The Highland Dallas is truly for ALL of you.
Julie Quaid and I, along with a dedicated planning committee, have created a program that promises to be the very best yet and we need you to be there. Many of you attended last year and came away amazed at the quality of the presentations and how much you learned. I assure you, this year will be even better and you need to be there.
This is going to be an exciting conference! We have preeminent speakers from around the country, as well as our own local favorites. You will come away a better collaborative professional for having attended. You will have more and better knowledge and new skills and ideas to put into practice. If you are going to attend ANY collaborative programs this year, THIS is the one to go to. Or, if you are thinking you can pass on collaborative education right now, THIS is NOT the year to miss.
You will also be among the first to hear about the major changes that will be happening at the state level, and the marketing and branding efforts that you will learn about firsthand. You need to be there so that you can be part of the next collaborative movement ground swell as Texas once again takes the lead on the “next big collaborative thing.”
Those of you who know me personally know that I have set a goal for this conference to be the best attended in the 9 years since it began and have set the number at a lofty 200! I have been told that ‘if you build it, they will come.” We have built it and I am asking you to please come and be part of “Honey’s 200.”
You will not be sorry. See you there!
