Back To "Reality!" Gearing Up For Life After The Conference PODCAST

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Before the Conference excitement wears off, let’s celebrate the highlights of this year’s conference program while also discussing ways to stay connected to each other throughout the year. Hosted by the IOCDF Spokespeople, this Podcast will give attendees the chance to contribute their own highlights from the Conference. We will be asking questions on social media throughout the Conference weekend leading up to the broadcast — using the #OCDcon hashtag — about the biggest takeaways you learned at this year’s conference, what your favorite parts of the conference were, and more. And we will talk about strategies for creating and nurturing your own network after the conference, whether that network is online, in a support group, or via a local affiliate.
