Rick Welsh Memorial Luncheon

Join your colleagues for this very special luncheon during the AER International Orientation & Mobility Conference and Meeting 2017! The purpose of this luncheon is to honor the memory of Rick Welsh and re-visit his expertise, humor, and impact on our profession. Rick was a mentor to many leaders in the field. He had a commitment to foster the growth of the profession and to provide support to those offering services. Rick is often credited as being the father of AER since he was an officer on the board at the time of the merger between AAWB and AEVH, was instrumental in combining the two organizations, and served as AER’s first president.  Please join us as we honor his memory by coming and sharing your stories about this giant of our field. Tickets $50. Register today!
