I'm in St. Louis this week, and man, is it cold. How cold is it? About 75 degrees colder than the last time I was here! That was back in the summer of 2006 when CPI had its Twelfth International Conference for Certified Instructors and the average daily temperature was 105 degrees. Yikes! Hot time in a very cool city.
Coincidentally enough, I'm in the midst of preparing for our next International Conference that's taking place in Orlando, FL in July 2011. This particular blog is part of that preparation. I'll be doing interviews with our Certified Instructors at that conference. Thanks to our creative department and the generosity of CPI, I am becoming familiar with a brand-new digital camera to record the interviews.
Between now and July, however, I hope to get a few preliminary interviews with the readers of this blog. Most of the questions for all of these interviews (both before and during the conference) will be about crisis intervention training and the impact it has had on your staff, the population in your care, and the organization you work for.
If you are interested in being interviewed, I would very much appreciate your input. Just leave a comment below with your contact information. Your other option is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Either way, I will contact you and give you more information. Due to scheduling protocol, I can't promise that I'll be in your neck of the woods between now and July to interview you. But, if you plan on being at the International Conference in Orlando, we can make plans to meet there and conduct an interview. Any footage we use will most likely be featured on this website.
Thank you in advance for your interest and your commitment to providing for the best Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of those you serve.
