Conference Hotel update

I have just been informed that the Marriott  block of rooms is sold out.  Marriott made arrangements with the Hawthorne Inn to honor the conference rate.  (See paragraph below) If you have not made hotel reservations, please do so now.  My understanding is there may rooms at the Marriott, just not at the conference rate.

“We have set up an info block for you at the Hawthorne Inn.  They are honoring our conference rate of $139. Guests at Hawthorne will have breakfast included in their rate and their hotel parking is free. Hawthorne Inn guests that choose to drive to Marriott for the conference will have the option of Garage parking at the Marriott or Valet parking at the day rate of $8.

They can call 336.777.3000 to book a room. “  (Courtney at Twin City Quarter Marriott)



Specialized Affiliate Training Offered at March Conference

The EA Specialist – Clinician (EAS-C) certificate of recognition program was developed by a team of experts to provide licensed mental health professionals in the U.S. with a unique opportunity to get an insider’s view of providing EA services as an extension of private practice. The course explains the unique aspects of EA practice and include tips for identifying the types of services affiliates provide for EAP vendors, as well as detailed information which may help providers increase EAP referrals. Certificate course completion includes a free one-year listing in EAPA’s EAS-C database, which is specifically marketed to EAP network managers.

As part of our annual March Conference, Jan Price from IEAPA will be the instructor for a one day, (6 contact hours) training covering the ins and outs of providing EAP services as a private practitioner.
