2018 TRO Conference Laughter Yoga Certification Survey

The 2018 TRO Conference Committee is considering running a Laughter Yoga Certification parallel to the TRO conference. By the end of the program, participants will be certified as a Laughter Yoga Leader. We are taking a brief survey to determine if there is enough interest. TRO member input will help us decide whether we should offer it or not.  Please take 1 -2 minutes to complete the survey and submit no later than Dec. 5, 2017.
