Saturday, October 24 Oregon ACDA presented a Fall Workshop with Dr. Nicole Lamartine! ONLINE. Yes, even if you missed it “live,” you can still enjoy the video of the event. 


Nicole had two morning sessions (starting at 10 a.m.) with a short break between.  Oregon ACDA leaders hosted a series of sessions from 1-2.

Best of all – it was FREE. 

ORACDA’s Summer ONLINE workshop was held August 4th. We recorded it! You may view presentations  HERE.
