CASA Leadership Comes Together at The Forum

Texas CASA recently hosted The Forum in San Antonio for local CASA program executive directors and program directors. The Forum, previously called the ED/PD Retreat, was renamed to better fit the vision and overall goal: our opportunity to come together as leaders to discuss successes, brainstorm ways to overcome challenges and envision the future of CASA that we want to see and how to get there.

The first day featured welcome remarks from Texas CASA CEO Vicki Spriggs, followed by an in-depth presentation on Asset-based Leadership: Building Stronger Organizations by Engaging, Rather than Overcoming, Differences by Martha Ramos Duffer, Psy. D. with Quantum Possibilities. Attendees were then able to network at a group happy hour and dinner. At the dinner, a special group was recognized – new executive directors who have reached their one-year anniversary!

Day 2 was packed with outstanding presentations on Employment Law with D’Ann Johnson, Communications for Leaders with Spaeth Communications and Managing People – Managing Results with Kate McLagan Bond. Over both days, executive directors and program directors were able to come together and share ideas while learning new tools and resources to take the CASA network and their leadership to the next level.

Thank you to everyone who attended! We’re looking forward to next year and growing our skills and collective vision so that one day every child has the safe, positive future they deserve.
