                      DEAR COLLEAGUE,
                     We are in the midst of planning our second annual Healing and Treating Trauma, Addictions and
                     Related Disorders conference. Last year’s conference attendees commented that the event was
     our company’s best ever. We hope to meet and exceed your expectations this fall with another stellar line-up of
     the finest presenters in our field.
     The four-day conference is scheduled to take place in Richmond, British Columbia on November 29th, 30th,
     December 1st and 2nd, 2011.
     Once again, Jack Hirose and Associates is honored to co-sponsor Canada’s Premier Psychotherapy and Workplace
     Mental Health Conference with EDGEWOOD Treatment Centre. EDGEWOOD is an internationally renowned private
     addictions treatment centre on Vancouver Island and a Canadian leader in alcohol and drug treatment.
     We will be offering many topics relevant to mental health practitioners as well as professionals in the workplace.
     We have expanded our list of topics to appeal to clinicians as well as to individuals who perform vital roles to create
     healthy work environments (human resource personnel, disability management personnel, occupational health
     professionals, employee and family assistance professionals, union representatives, health and safety committee
     members, health insurers and employers of both small and large businesses).
     It is our hope that the conference will provide you with new skills, insights, and ideas and allow you to perform at
     the highest level. You will not be disappointed. Mark this event on your calendar. We look forward to seeing you at
     this special event this fall.
        Regards,
