Discount on AERO Conference in August

Jerry Mintz, the founder of AERO (Alternative Education Resource Organization), contacted me after getting the last Schools of Conscience newsletter to offer a discount to anyone who mentions my name in the notes when you are ordering a registration for the AERO Conference this year.

He said your registration would be reduced from the standard rate of $275 to the low income rate which was $225 when I last checked.

SAVE $50!

Thanks, Jerry!

(FYI- The student rate is even less, if you qualify.)

Campaign to Send Don to the International SDT Conference in June

This is a Great Opportunity for me to introduce my work to the scientists and academics that are making one of the most important contributions ever to improving the well-being of our society.

These folks are the scientific explorers who discovered the very foundations of psychological well-being!

They do great work and my being a part of their world will provide opportunities for collaboration and keep up with what is on the leading edge of research.

You can help by sending me to present a poster at the International Self-Determination Theory Conference being held in Victoria, BC, Canada, from June 3rd to the 6th.

Kayla Good, a rising Senior at Reed College, is my collaborator on the poster.

We're already on the schedule and I have also raised the funds to cover the conference registration and travel through collaboration between a foundation and the Open Road Learning Community for Teens, where I serve on the Board.

The funds will cover my stay in the HI-Victoria Hostel which is only an 8-minute walk from the conference hotel and the cost of printing the poster along with some Schools of Conscience handouts.
