Happy January to you all from us here at Tobosa Developmental Services in Roswell, NM.  I wanted to start the New Year off by expressing how very excited I am about the National Conference in Vancouver, WA!  We were lucky enough to get selected to do 3 presentations during the conference.  I am looking forward to networking with new people and to seeing some great familiar faces.  We will be taking a group of 6 from here (including Bill Jones and I – who will both be presenting).  What an awesome experience we had at the other conferences we attended and we have no doubts that this one will be just as awesome.

One of the things we are working on here in Roswell, is to use the Training Academy more formally this year.  We have been using it since Nationals last year, very informally.  We use it now to learn about new modules as we attempt to use them within our agency.  But starting in 2016 we are looking at implementing them into our New Employee Orientation Training.  It is exciting and I can’t wait to see how we make it work for us.

I could blog on for hours, but I will wrap it up – and save my breathe for our presentations – Can you believe it is in 3 weeks from today?!?!  Ahhhhh!!!!!  Better get back to preparing -ha ha.  See you guys there.
