The weekly list of free educational events and resources for the association community…

Free professional development resources and events for CAEs, association staff and others in the association community

Brain Food is quick and dirty this week. I haven’t had time since returning on Wednesday night from our Arizona hiking vacation to do any of my usual work on this week’s Brain Food post. Because our North Carolina home is surrounded by trees in rain-soaked ground, I’m preparing for the winds of Hurricane Florence and the inevitable power outage instead of giving my usual attention to this post.

What you have below are the event notes I made before I left on vacation plus information I published last week about upcoming educational events. Yes, event information is missing and entire events are probably missing from this list but that’s the best I can do right now. Hopefully next Friday, everything will be back to normal.

Please keep all of us here in the Carolinas in your positive thoughts and prayers. Trees, stay up!
