Region 12 wants to reach every member with our education programs, so we’re taking it on the road and bringing a two day event to Oregon at a comfortable, central, scenic location!  Although it’s called Oregon Days, it’s for EVERYONE in Region 12 and any interested singers in other regions! 

July 22 is a mini AIM – Think of it as a one day AIM weekend in your back yard!  Classes focus on being a better section leader and section singer, prioritizing and planning in your chorus life, membership retention and problem-solving chorus musical issues.  A limited number of PVI coaching times are available too.  On Saturday night, there will be a dinner and party.  Don’t miss this chance for great food, great singing and great company! 

July 23 we have the Region 12 L.A.W. (Learn Arm Waving) school returning to Oregon by popular demand!  Directors, assistant directors, section leaders and choreographers can all benefit by learning more about conducting the music, but singers benefit most of all!  Imagine finally decoding what your leader’s nonverbal signals really mean!  This will be the third time we’ve brought LAW school to Oregon and we look forward to seeing women who’ve attended before as well as newcomers to this fun program. 

Regional faculty members include Connie Norman, Kathy Scheel, Cyndi Sharp, Julie Starr, and Angela Suraci.  Registration fee includes lunch, and is just $40 for one day and $75 for both days.  (Slight surcharge for participants outside of Region 12.)  Youth discounts for those under the age of 25 are also available. 

Both events will be at the
Village Green Resort in Cottage Grove, Oregon just off I-5.  The Village Green is a hidden gem in the beautiful Willamette Valley.  The resort includes extensive gardens, a pool, and all the convenience of a resort while offering an enchanting, historic feel.  For those who want to stay overnight on Friday and/or Saturday, the resort provides an affordable rate including an expanded continental breakfast.  To book a room go to the booking website. Guests will be prompted for a Group ID & Password, which is:  SWEETAD.  Rooms need to be reserved by June 21 to guarantee the discounted rate.  On both Friday and Saturday, a convenient and delicious lunch will be provided at the venue.  On Saturday night, dinner will be available for $25 as part of a fun social evening.
