Please join us on May 19, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 pm for a special Networking Meeting to celebrate the partnership between IDA and CalAIMH!  The goal is to bring us out of our silos and create a space for early intervention specialists and infant mental health professionals to converse.  You can find out how infant mental health practices can enrich your work in early intervention.  Or you can come share stories of how infant mental health ideas have influenced your practice as a professional!

Come to connect with colleagues and share ideas and resources while sampling some handcrafted artisan wines and delicious appetizers! Betty Kaufman will be on hand to host the wine tasting and share her notes on how to find a good bottle of wine.  There are limited spaces for this event. Registration will begin soon.  We will start promptly at 2:10 p.m.  You don't want to miss out on this networking event!

The event fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members.
