Dear TCF International Representatives,

We have been very busy completing the many steps for our 2020 Virtual Annual Conference. It’s coming up in just two weeks, and we’ve had a lot of interest in attending.

Since my last email, we have been able to upload all of our workshop sessions and additional activities to the site. Please see the email below with more detail about the full conference offerings.

Would you please share this information with your respective groups? The sessions, with the exception of sharing circles and roundtables, will be recorded so that people in different time zones can be accommodated. We would love to have people from many TCF’s attending this year given that it is virtual and doesn’t require the travel.

Here’s the link to our conference website.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you or provide additional information. Thank you.

With warm regards,

Shari

Dear TCF International Representatives,

It is a pleasure to meet you virtually and to become a part of this wonderful international community.

Myrtle was kind enough to provide me with information for all of you so that I could share news of our new virtual conference that we will be hosting at the end of the month. This 2020 virtual conference will take the place of our in-person national conference that was to be held this year in Atlanta, GA. Although a virtual conference is different in many ways, it also provides the opportunity to extend internationally and reach our TCF global community. Myrtle had tried to email this but had some trouble and asked if I could forward the information.

Please see Myrtle’s email below along with the attached flyer for more details about the conference. Would you please share this information with your TCF communities?

We will be ready to send registration information early next week for anyone who wants to attend. The sessions will be recorded so that accommodations can be made for international time zone differences.

Please let me know what questions I might be able to answer.

With warm regards,

Shari

Dear International Representatives

Shari, the new USA CEO, has asked me to share this exciting and enterprising
news with you all. Well done to her and her team for taking on the
organisation of this mammoth task in order not to miss a National Gathering
even during these uncertain times of lockdown. Our South African Annual
National Gathering has been postponed till next year but you may be holding
your own virtual one, and if you are, please let us know so we can keep you
in our thoughts at that time. I know that each of you, in your own way will
be doing your share to carry on the good work of TCF and I wish you all the
best in coping with this situation, especially if you have the extra sadness
of children who may die of Covid 19.

Warmest love to you all from another beautiful, sunny Winter’s day in East
London, South Africa

Myrtle
