Support Group Leaders Retreat - May 19-21, 2006
Sun, May 21, 2006

The Scottsdale Plaza Resort
7200 North Scottsdale Road at Indian Bend
Scottsdale, AZ 85253


For its Support Group Leader Retreat each year, the IMF plans an agenda packed with informative presentations. This year, to make sure that we are providing you with the information that you feel you need most to assist you in running your support group, please take a minute to think about your group's needs. What topics would be most beneficial for us to address at the 2006 Retreat? You will be receiving a packet with a form on which you can suggest topics or you can contact Robin Tuohy at (203) 206-3536 or by e-mail at Tuohy@snet.net to discuss your suggestions.

While the actual agenda is still under development, you will want to make travel arrangements far enough in advance to take advantage of special fares, etc. For planning purposes, please be aware of the following:

The Support Group Leaders' Retreat will officially begin on Friday, May 19th at 1 PM. Andy Lebkuecher and Robin Tuohy will be available should you wish to have an opportunity to meet with them individually to discuss your support group and how the IMF can be of continued service. They look forward to meeting those of you who may not have been able to attend last year!

The formal program will officially close on Sunday at noon and include additional presentations on Sunday morning this year! Please plan your travel arrangements accordingly.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Robin at (203) 206-3536 or by e-mail at Tuohy@snet.net.
