Plans are now set for this year’s special 40th Anniversary conference. Our theme, “Honouring Roots...Standing Tall...Branching Out!” reflects our commitment to create a unique conference framework within which many of COEO's original “elders” and long-time “sustainers” will be personally invited to return to share in the celebration of: a) how our organization was born and nurtured, b) its current “best practices”, and c) what it is already in the process of becoming!
Please plan to join us as we explore new ideas and perspectives, learn and share, refocus and rejuvenate for the special “40th anniversary year” ahead! Our host site will be Camp Pine Crest, located near Torrance in beautiful Muskoka, Ontariohttp://www.coeo.org/important-details.html
