National Training for the 1st Quarter of 2021
Although we continue to experience the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic across our great nation, the 4th quarter was still able to have two WCOs (IL and AL) and a NEEC (STX) successfully completed by almost 100 eager participants. The national training schedule for the 1st quarter of 2021 is a little light, which is fairly typical for our first quarter.
Word of Encouragement: I know I said this in my last quarterly update, but it bears repeating. Before I say my usual, “Go ahead and register now because you could be the one to make it happen,” I want you to know that I am aware of the hardships and devastation this pandemic has caused many of our leaders and their families. Your family comes first, and I want you to know that while I will continue to encourage you to register for those training events you want or need to advance, I also understand you need to take care of your home first. Family and home are your first priority, period. This pandemic will subside, and training events will still be available.
Now, if you are able, I want to encourage you to sign up for the national training events that you are interested in. Your risk is zero. If a camp or conference gets cancelled, full refunds or transfers to another camp or conference will be offered. Please do not wait until an event is a “GO.” It is possible that a venue is up and running, but we must cancel due to insufficient registrations. Register now.
Keep an eye on the national training website as it continues to be updated.
In closing, although this year has been like no other, may you and yours have the merriest Christmas ever. Our faith and joy are not dependent upon earthly things nor principalities but rather on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as we are about to celebrate His birth. May His peace be yours, and may you take rest in His presence.
