I’m really looking forward to next week’s World EAP Conference at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Hotel in Orlando, Fla. The event, sponsored by the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA), features scores of informative sessions, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities with both current EAP acquaintances as well as the chance to meet new EA professionals. … And attendees are from all over the globe! (This will also include making some time to do a little sightseeing at Walt Disney World.)
Impact Publications, publishers of this blog, edits and lays out EAPA’s quarterly magazine, the Journal of Employee Assistance (JEA), as well as Impact’s Employee Assistance Report (EAR) newsletter.
The conference, to be Sept. 29-Oct. 2, has been a great way to connect with EA professionals to learn about important EAP trends and solicit articles for these publications, the JEA in particular. Some of the articles are based on conference presentations.

This blog will feature highlights from the 2014 World EAP Conference the week of Oct. 6-10.
