On January 27th, Collaborative Practice San Diego held its first Board meeting of 2021 to plan for the coming months.
There is no doubt that 2020 challenged all of us in ways we never thought was possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are honored to say that we made it through and made it through by successfully helping clients through mediation and the practice of collaborative divorce, as well as providing them monthly Divorce Options Workshops™ to help answer their questions and learn more about their options for a divorce.
While the pandemic put many things on hold and changed the world in so many ways, our group rose to the challenge of meeting our clients’ needs in various capacities. And for this, we are truly grateful to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
As Board members look towards the hope that 2021 brings, we discussed and appointed the following committee chairs:
- Shawn D. Skillin and Meredith G. Lewis – Divorce Options Workshop™
- Leslie Ryland, Barry Levine and Cinda Jones – Professional outreach
- Elizabeth Brown – Membership committee
- Leslie Ryland – C0-Chair Local Committee for the IACP Forum
On October 28-31st, 2021, a date has been set to hold the 22nd annual IACP Networking and Educational Forum in San Diego, California. While many events occurred virtually in 2020, we look forward to meeting in person at this year’s event.
