I can’t believe that I have been working at ALD Life for over two months now.

Last week Sara organised a staff training for us around the values of ALD Life. It was a great day and among the many things we covered it was decided that “the best solutions come together by working collaboratively with common goals and purposes.” It is so nice to be part of a team so dedicated to supporting families and getting the word out about ALD and AMN.

We have started to put together ideas for next year’s Family Weekend and are looking at hotels in London with good parking facilities.

We think it will be a good idea to change things around a bit, does anybody have any suggestions for events, workshops, talk’s etc. that you would like to see, please let us know.

We also want to have a new name for our weekend. One suggestion “ALD Life Community Conference Weekend.” Can you come up with a better name?
