One member's recap of the Montreal conference

My name is Sharie Clarke and I am from the Montreal Chapter of the AEBC. I attended the AEBC 2016 AGM in Montreal. It was my first time at an AGM and over all, despite a few hick-ups; I found it a wonderful experience. There is something to be said for the sense of community I found there that is usually more difficult to grasp. I especially enjoyed feeling, for the first time, like I was part of a larger organization. So often, I find myself so hyper-focused on the causes of my chapter that I tend to lose site of the broader picture of the entire organization. I was very pleased to attend all three days and to take part in all they had to offer.

My only regret is my late arrival on Friday, because I heard the Friday morning workshops were quite good.
