Conference news...

In 2016 AAHA will host the conference. Then, in 2017, AHAF will be celebrating its 50 year anniversary in Tucson, AZ. Start planning now to join us.

It was AHAF's year to host the Conference and once again, we did something innovative.

Your AHAF board voted to use Zoom.us teleconferencing to hold three one-day events. The October 10 event featured three excellent speakers. This conference series was a very personal experience because it was something you could do right from your home. 

Why should you have attended the web conference series? 

  • Great speakers.
  • Each speaker brings new material to their presentation. 
  • The talks are taped so you can re-watch at your leisure. 
  • Receive handout materials and follow ups for each speaker.   
  • Even if you cannot be at your desk at the specified date/time, if you are registered, you will receive the program and handout materials.
  • Interact with other attendees from around the world during the break. 

In other words, you get all the benefits of being on-site but without the airport/travel hassle, without the expense of hotels and meals, without time away from work. And it all happens in the convenience of your own home or with your handwriting group. Considering inflation, it’s still cheaper than attending the last in-person conference. 

Make it a party!

We encouraged getting together with your chapter, study group, or friends for a viewing party. If you’d like some ideas about how to arrange this, contact Val (valweil@comcast.net). She will also show you how to use Zoom.us, which is easy and free. 

Here's what we offered at the third event for 2015:

Conference #3: October 10, 2015

Mathew Thomas: Graphology for the New Generation

Adam Brand: An exploration of the Stroke

Sarah Holmes Tucker, MS  Topic: A Neuropsychological Investigation into the Validity of Handwriting Analysis. 

All are welcome at our conference events. You don't have to be a AHAF or AAHA member to attend (but you'll get a discount if you are).
