AASECT recognizes the extreme personal and financial toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on its membership. The AASECT Board of Directors, Finance Committee, and the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee have been working together to establish some limited financial assistance for membership dues.
Though everyone wishes it was over, here we are still in the midst of COVID-19.
Yesterday, in Denver, we had one of, if not the largest local section event ever held for AASECT. We had 200 people come to see Dr. Emily Nagoski. It was an intersection of more than 100 AASECT members, plus local members from the EFT community, plus students and faculty from Denver Family Institute, a long-time CE Provider. (Janelle Washburne, Scott Church and I are all AASECT CST's who all teach at Denver Family Institute).
Hello colleagues: July and August have been months of regrouping at AASECT. After June’s marathon Board meeting and mega-activity Conference, reflecting about where we are, who we are, and where we need to go as an organization has become the focus of board attention. Tasks put on hold to meet demands of governance and conference organizing in June now press for attention, and September annual planning is here. The themes that are preoccupying leadership this year are strategic planning and revision of governance documents and ways of doing things.
"How do we center creation and desire as integral to liberation? That is a question we’re going to have to keep asking ourselves . . . this world begs . . .[us to] move out of scarcity, move out of fear, move out of crisis, . . [that we be] powerful, fully living beings.” Adrienne Marée Brown. Pleasure Activism Dear colleagues,
Happy Holidays, Colleagues, I hope you will be with those you love during your holidays. Before we all get totally into the flow of holiday schedules, however, I want to take a moment to share some of what AASECT board members have been working on since July 1, when we assumed our new leadership roles. We had our first in-person board training and meeting November 2 and 3, and I want to share some of these highlights.
