Workshops in Yuma cancelled due to low registration

Unfortunately, not enough people registered for the workshops I was going to present in Yuma, Arizona in October, so the workshops had to be cancelled. I hope whatever led to the low registration this time is remedied in the future, and I look forward to presenting to those who registered as well as those who wanted to but were unable to do so at this time.

Keep watching here for details about future workshops!

Upcoming workshops:

  • September 24, 2011, Virginia Beach, VA: Vague Language
  • October 15, 2011, Milwaukee, WI: Vague Language

Recent workshops:

  • August 20, 2011, Honolulu, HI: Vague Language
  • August 12, 2011, Monmouth, OR: Vague Language

For more information about the workshops I offer, take a gander at my Interpreting Workshops page.

Have you ever had a speaking engagement cancelled or have you ever had to cancel one as a planner? Or perhaps a college class? Do you have any ideas about getting sufficient registration to avoid cancellation?

LAST CALL for October workshops in Yuma

If you’ve been planning to register for the workshops I’m presenting in Yuma, you need to register today so they don’t get canceled. Vague Language is Oct 1st and Genre Recognition is October 2nd. Both workshops will be held at the Southwest Regional Co-op, 1047 S 4th Ave Yuma AZ 85364. Saturday is 9a-4p and Saturday is 8a–3p, both with a one–hour lunch break. I hope to see people from both California and Arizona since Yuma is on the state line. Please pass the word so these workshops are a successful venture for the sponsor, Arizona RID, and reach the greatest number of people possible.

Please register right now.
