The Fall Conference was enjoyed by all who attended. Great presentations by Ken Balban, Sue Tomaszewski, and Gino LoRicco with Staff & Student. Involvement activities with Shruti Tekwani were fantastic. Lots of fun and learning.

Representatives from Quinebaug Middle College talked about democracy in the school using principles of Choice Theory. Hazel is a senior who will graduate from High School with 20 college credits.



Lois Knapton, our Regional Representative to WGI US and Ken Balban, our Regional Chair. Ken gave the opening presentation after Shruti Tekwani's involvement activity. Shruti also led a pre conference training on Friday afternoon called Take Charge of Your Life with great information and discussion about Choice Theory. Quinebaug Middle College provided breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Gino LoRicco continued the presentation on Choice Theory and Democracy working in the school setting.
Sue Tomaszewski followed Ken with a presentation on How Democratic is Consensus Decision Making?
Great discussions, food and fun after the presentation at dinner.
