I don't feel very original when I say I can't believe it's the end of the year. The holiday rush is on, in case you've been missing the signs since mid-October. I've been occupied with planning the ACGA retreat, which is happening on Saturday, January 11, 2014. Planning is required because the retreat is being tweaked a bit this year. We will still be taking care of business the way we do, but we will be leaving a lot more time for socializing, and we have a few unexpected things in store that I hope will inspire you for the coming year and get you excited to be a part of the ACGA. In honor of the changes, the retreat will be called the "The ACGA Getaway" and it will be held in the historic Pedro Point Firehouse in Pacifica, close to the beach. More details are in the newsletter, so mark you calendars and send me an RSVP that I will be seeing you there!
I wish everyone a lovely and sane holiday. Remember to breathe deeply and enjoy this exciting time of year.
