Literacy Texas Newsletter, October 15, 2021

Literacy is for Everyone

It’s officially fall, the holidays are just around the corner (no, we can’t believe it either!) – that means we’re wrapping up our annual slate of regional symposiums. Our final symposium, Gulf Coast, is going virtual again this year and we welcome you to register for this half-day panel event on “The Next Normal,” with focuses on both program structure and fundraising.

I’m also pleased to officially welcome Kathryn Bauchelle, who started working for Literacy Texas in a consulting capacity earlier this year, and now continues part-time, focused mainly on training and communications. Many of you are familiar with Kathryn as a regular presenter at our annual conference; she also brings years of experience in the Texas adult literacy field, and is skilled in Volunteer Management, Program Direction and Evaluation, Marketing, Communications, and Fund Development. I’m delighted to have her on board.

Also this month: A brand new networking opportunity, a wealth of resources via the invaluable TCALL PD Portal, and ways to shine the advocacy spotlight on both Dyslexia Awareness Month and Health Literacy Month – along with pics, literacy calendar, social media, and more.

Thanks for being a friend of literacy!
