GPOP Conference 2019 Recap

Leave a comment

The 2019 Conference & PD Committee worked hard to pull together a program focusing on the themes of Inclusion, Balance and Harmony and they did not disappoint! From Saturday night’s welcome reception and keynote speaker to Sunday’s presentation and discussions, these three themes were woven throughout. One of the highlights was keynote speaker Sharon Thira, Director – Indigenous Learning & Engagement at New Brunswick Community College. Sharon spoke about Indigenous culture, shared the history of the wampum belt, and provided tips on how to make a meaningful land acknowledgement. In her interactive presentation on Sunday, Sharon talked about the four dimensions of life balance: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. You can access both of Sharon’s presentations – Singing Your Song of Peace and Life Balance – on the GPOP website under Resources/Presentations (note the presentations are password protected with the password you received when joining GPOP). The conference was an excellent opportunity to re-connect with colleagues, meet some new members, soak up new knowledge and share best practices. Congratulations to the Planning Committee for a successful conference and thanks to all who joined us in Niagara Falls!
