UPCOMING TRAININGS/CONFERENCES:

Where:  Gym of CCB

***If anyone has suggestions about vendors, please email Heather Solberg at [email protected].

More details to come in emails regarding what vendors will be present.

At the NFB conference, CAER will be providing an IEP training session for teachers and parents, 1 hour of ACVREP credit available for those interested.  Information coming in a near future email. We have received many great suggestions and are working on getting those in place!  Will be information posted and sent to everyone in an email when we have things finalized.

We still need more suggestions/ideas for trainings, nothing is out of the question so please submit ideas and the board can look at how to provide the training.

 

FUNDAISERS:

Be on the lookout!

We are beginning to plan another Spero Winery Fundraiser.  It will be in February, more information to come.  If you are interested in volunteering or being involved, please contact Jeannie Lei at [email protected].

The Board is working on fundraisers all the time, but here are some ideas as a member that you can organize for the organization:

We are working on fundraisers.  If you have an idea, please let the board know, please consider setting one up on your own and helping out CAER.  Some ideas:

Have a yard sale and part of proceeds go to CAER

Check with local eateries to see if they have a night to dedicate to a non-profit

Bake sale

Host a home product party

Extra change from your pocket

The list can go on and one.  If you have any other ideas, please feel free to share!
