Note from Carrie:
We at TFI have been enthusiastic supporters/members of CTXWFS and its parent World Future Society for many years. These are wonderful organizations for those who see foresight as an important way to improve our businesses and our world. We appreciate CTXWFS and WFS for sponsoring our 2012-2014 MiniTrends Conferences and providing excellent CTXWFS speakers including Steve Pearson, Wayne Caswell, Jeffrey Fry, and Joyce Gioia. Long-time Contributing Editor to WFS’s The Futurist Magazine, David Pearce Snyder, was so well-received as our 2012 Keynote, we had him back in 2014! Dr. John Vanston, David, and I did Master Courses in 2013 and 2014 at WFS’s annual WorldFuture Conference. This year I am honored not only to be speaking on the Five Keys here at CTXWFS, but also at July’sWorldFuture 2015 in San Francisco. Thanks, CTXWFS and WFS!

About those glitches in our email software
We apologize for occasional glitches in our email software that randomaly sends out "golden oldie" meeting notices from previous years. We use a professional service, Wild Apricot, but the source of this glitch remains a mystery to everyone involved. When in doubt about an email from CTXWFS, check for a meeting date. If there isn't one, it's probably one of those glitches happening again. Or email me directly if you're unsure and I will try to respond - Mike Ig (firstname.lastname@example.org)
