The 7th annual THLN animal advocacy conference is a must for any animal advocate. The event will be held September 18-20 at the Omni Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Colinas. According to the website, this year’s workshop sessions will cover animal legislation updates at the state and federal levels as well as important “how-to” tips for grassroots activism and garnering media attention for animal welfare causes. Panel discussions will focus on shelter pets, horses, and the importance of uniting animal welfare groups for the good of the animals.
I see the keynote speaker is my buddy Phil Arkow. Phil is an expert on the Link, and the role of humane education in animal welfare, and he’s a genuinely personable and funny guy. Other notable speakers include Kathy Davis from San Antonio AC&C, local experts Skip Trimble, Monica Ailey, Stacy Smith, Jan Herzog, from Wichita Falls and Cheryl Martinez from Corpus Christi. There’s an impressive list of sponsors already lined up, and exhibitors include DFW Wildlife Coalition and Texas Unites (yes, the “Spay/Neuter Your Weird Friends & Relatives t-shirts will be available!).
Registration is open now. See you there.
