This workshop is scheduled for October 7, 2002 at Canaan Valley Resort in Davis, WV. Two nationally recognized presenters, Patricia Martin and Carol Dahir, will present current information and practical strategies as West Virginia counselors prepare to assume a vital role in response to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
