The MidAmerica Herbal Symposium will be returning in 2014. Life can get really busy as many of you know and sometimes we have to look at what has to be set aside for a while as we conquer other objectives.
Other objectives have been completed so focus is back on organizing the next symposium. Discussion has brought us to a new agenda. Many have requested not to hold numerous back to back classes. The preference is to have fewer choices as to classes to attend.
We can do that! The 2014 agenda will be simplified, only 2 classes at a time. One will be for the beginner to the intermediate, the other for the intermediate to the advanced. They will be 2 - 3 hours in length!! Even our teachers are loving the new agenda. Some remarked that a 1 1/2 hour class only gets you started, then its time to wrap it up. They love the 2 or 3 hour class. No intensives are needed. They all are intensives!! No additional fee for taking intensives anymore. One symposium fee for it all!!!
