Dear Lessac Friends,
It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 12th Annual Conference of the Lessac Training and Research Institute, which will be held January 4-6, 2017,on the campus of Penn State University at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center, State College, Pa . Returning for the third time to “Happy Valley” for our conference, our theme this year is “Optimizing Your Life” and is dedicated to the memorable life and accomplishments of Sue Ann Park.
You may begin submitting your proposals for presentations to share at this year’s conference. Please see the “Guidelines for Presentations of the Annual Lessac Institute Conferences” for more information. Conference Proposal submissions are due by October 1, 2016.
On Wednesday, January 4, there will be two concurrent pre-conference workshops. The Annual Pre-Conference Workshop for Sustaining Certification will be offered to certified trainers needing to fulfill this requirement. Topics for this workshop will be initiated by Master Teachers and by the attending certified trainers. Also this year, I will offer a one-day workshop on Kinesensic Stage Dialect Training. This workshop is open to anyone with some awareness of Lessac Voice Training and will utilize the training process of my textbook, STAGE DIALECT STUDIES. Each workshop will be held from 9:00 am to 5:00pm with a two-hour lunch break.The conference hotel will extend the conference rate for these workshops for Tuesday arrivals.
