The third annual Advocates Workshop is a nuts-and-bolts discussion of the topics of greatest interest to those who are considering starting a Lyme disease group of their own, or for groups already established who want to learn more.  This conference follows the highly successful program started by CALDA in San Francisco in 2008 and Washington, D.C. in 2009.

The most experienced leaders in the Lyme community will help you in such areas as how to start a new group; determining your focus; legal issues; fundraising; how to provide education to the public in your community; setting up Web sites and other on-line resources; recruiting, training, and managing volunteers; state Lyme legislation advocacy; and more.

There will be plenty of time to network and socialize with others who are considering forming a group and those who have been running groups successfully.  Each session will have a Q&A /discussion period.

(The Hyatt Penns Landing hotel will honor the special LDA conference rate for Thursday night)

Organized by the Lyme Disease Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Inc. (LDASEPA)
