The World Seminar 2019 was hosted by Clubhouse International, a worldwide network of more than 300 mental health Clubhouses operating on six continents. Over 400 attendees at World Seminar 2019 represented 22 countries and 25 U.S. States. The six-day Seminar provided an opportunity to share best-practices as developed by Clubhouse International’s Clubhouse community.
The Academy at Glengary, a three-year accredited program of Clubhouse International, was invited to make presentations at three workshops, an institute and a plenary session. We were busy! The Academy was represented by Academy members Paul Hennekes and Carla Guiffrida, Board President Joan Geyer, and staff members Joanne Campbell and William McKeever. It was an unforgettable experience.
The Academy is committed to the pursuit of excellence in all areas of operations. We follow the guiding principles of the 37 International Standards for Clubhouse Programs, which act as a bill of rights for members and a code of ethics for staff.
