K9’s For Warriors – Baron the Dog’s Graduation

ASMC National News - Tue, 2017-06-20 10:12

At ASMC’s PDI 2016 our Charity Raffle beneficiary was K9’s For Warriors, (a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization) dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from post 9/11 trauma disabilities. Their goal is to empower our suffering warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.

Based upon our contribution to K9’s For Warriors, ASMC was provided the opportunity to name a dog to be trained and then paired with a recovering warrior. Baron, named by Al Runnels, ASMC’s Executive Director, is a Golden Retriever given to K9’s For Warriors as a puppy and placed into the puppy-raising program where he spent almost a year living with a foster family until he was mature enough to enter the kennel. There was some basic training in the puppy program, so Baron had a head start on most of the other dogs entering the kennel.

Baron has completed his training and will soon be walking at his graduation ceremony that K-9s For Warriors will broadcast on their Facebook Live page for about 30-45 minutes on Thursday, 22 June, starting promptly at 1800 EDT. We invite our ASMC members to access the broadcast and watch Baron and his new "best friend” graduate from the training program.

Please visit https://www.facebook.com/K9sforWarriors on Thursday, 22 June at 1800 EST.

Pre-PDI CDFM Training Modules & Mini-Course Evaluations

The overall General PDI Survey (including the three-question surveys applicable to each workshop you attended) was delivered to your primary email address Thursday, 8 June 2017. Once you open the overall PDI survey email, please take a moment to complete and submit the survey as soon as you can so we can continually improve your PDI experience. The overall PDI Survey (incl. applicable workshop surveys) are different from the Mandatory CDFM Training Module and Mini-Course Evaluations, which are required for you to obtain direct credit for Mini-courses in which you “fully participated.”

Note: Surveys are hosted on SurveyMonkey. Due to Firewalls and Security Protocols, you might not be able to access the SurveyMonkey site. We advise you access the surveys from your web-enabled smart device or your home computer.

Mini-Courses & Workshops Presentation Slides
Presentation slides will be posted on PDI2017.org by the end of June.

Virtual PDI (VPDI) 2017
Included in this year’s registration fee, VPDI 2017 will be available in July. As a PDI 2017 attendee, you will still need to register (but not pay) to access VPID 2017. More information will be available at PDI2017.org in the next few weeks.

Credits
By the end of June, PDI 2017 attendees will receive an email (sent by Registration HQ) to the primary email account that the registrant provided in completing the PDI registration function. The email will include documentation information concerning Mini-courses and workshops for which the individual participated, based upon badge scan data. As a reminder, Registration HQ CPE documentation does not include provision of CPEs for presentations by general session speakers. Because extremely long queues would occur, we do not scan for entry into general sessions. You may self-document CPEs for the general sessions for CDFM recertification purposes.

Note: If you did not receive email communications from RHQ (in regards to PDI registration) or ASMC, consider switching your primary email from your work email address to a personal email. Due to DoD Firewalls and Security Protocols, you may not be receiving email communications. To change your primary email address with RHQ, please contact pdiregistration@rhq.com or call 702-798-8376. To change your ASMC primary email, please email membership@asmconline.org.

For more information, please contact, Brian Gresham @ gresham@ASMConline.org
