Díapalooza 2011

Ready for our second annual Díapalooza? My web team, Laurina Cashin and Bobbie Combs, and I hope you’re finding the Día Nuggets helpful as you plan for culminating 15th Anniversary Día Celebrations. At the end of April, we’ll post a pdf of a Día Planning Booklet, including the 15 Nuggets and 30 Día Reflections I’ve written. All this material is also archived on my site. We’ve recently changed my web design and enhanced some navigational features so if you haven’t visited in awhile, take a look.

My hope is that when your Día committee does its assessment, you’ll find the booklet a helpful guide on ideas for the future. Next year, print copies of the booklet pdf for your diverse committee and personalize it with your unique cover design.
