With all the snow around lately, it makes me feel as if we are already in beautiful Vail, Colorado. I think we are
so lucky to live in this beautiful state where people really do envy us. Of course, most people think that the
whole state is mountains and they are shocked that Colorado has anything else. Being from the far northeast
corner of the state, I can assure you that Colorado does have something else...the beautiful sandhills and plains.

You wonder why I talk of our gorgeous state? It is because I am chairman of the Vendor committee? Do you
think other states are lucky enough to get vendors to come to visit their child support conferences? I am
thinking not!! Being able to hold our conferences in great areas like Breckenridge last year and Vail this year is
a huge draw. We already have at least five vendors that have voiced interest in attending and we hope there will
be several more as well.

If any of you work with a vendor that you think we might need to contact, please let me know. We are trying to
contact everyone soon so if you can get me that information, I will contact them.

We know all of you like the “vendor goodies” they distribute but we also encourage everyone to stop and visit
with the vendors and make their investment worthwhile for them when you see them in Vail. Hope to see you all

Charla Peterson, Chairman – Vendor committee


Do you ever get overwhelmed with work and family? Have you dreaded coming into the office? Have you
considered turning around and going back home once you get to work?
One of the presenters we have at conference this year will have a great presentation for you.

Connie Pshigoda will speak to us about optimum wellness that produces a beautiful balance in our lives. She is
a life coach who provides clients with information, insight, feedback and guidance to assist them in changing
their attitudes or behavior in accordance to their personal values and beliefs.

In fact, to alleviate your stress even more, we are offering the session at two different times so you will be sure to
attend. Check out Connie’s website at

Hello from Your Central-Vice-President!!!!

Wow, the time sure flies by fast. It is hard to believe that it is almost time for the conference. This is to let you
know that the CFSC Council has been meeting once a month to plan the conference being held June 10 th
through 13th in Vail. All the council members are hard at work trying to assure this conference will provide the
only some great training but some fun for all to enjoy.
