2015 SWC Convention: Workshops

In Uncategorized on February 28, 2015 at 6:38 pm

The convention committee has a great line up of workshops this year.  Here’s a taste of what’s to come with more information on each coming soon.  In particular order, here they are:

  1. Deputy Jose Velasquez. Joe began his career with US Border Patrol before joining the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. He’ll share experiences in the field and share with us the best ways to communicate in an emergency situation. He’ll also be speaking about what and how to communicate with dispatch. Joe is a true Texas lawman and vaquero. Here, when we say the good guys wear white hats, we mean it.

  1. Family Dynamics Panel will focus on the family; communication with our children, grandchildren, significant others.
  1. Be Seen, Be Heard! Don’t hide your hearing aids or cochlear implants. Let’s show them off instead.  Why it’s important to come out of the closest plus keeping our hearing aids and CI’s safe and secure. A small activity to bling our hearing devices follows a short talk.
