I so enjoyed my meeting with members of AFPDC in Paris! What a wonderful group of smart, insightful, engaging and delightful Collaborative practitioners. We spoke very frankly about IACP's role in supporting the growth of CP in Europe, how we can help to best meet the needs of the French in educating the public, upholding standards of practice and remaining globally connected. I might add that we are delighted to welcome AFPDC as a new Whole Group to IACP - with 97 members joining our community this week. 

My meeting in Paris was a truly fabulous way to wrap up my European adventure. It has been such a privilege to meet with so many remarkable Collaborative practitioners throughout the European continent. My hope in sharing these small tidbits of my travels has been to help introduce our international community to members beyond our own borders and to heighten  our collective awareness of the power inherent in our coming together. We've much to learn from one another and support to share with one another. I hope that those of you reading these posts might be inspired to reach out, post your own blogs and videos and continue to make our united voice that much more vital.

Talia, thanks for traveling to reach out to all the Collaborative Communities.  When are you coming to Washington State?  May not be Paris, France . . .

Actually, it is not Paris, France.

Nice nonetheless.

To the French Collaborative Community:  If you come to Seattle please look us up.  We would love to host you at our Practice Group meetings to share.
