   General Membership Meeting Update

The General meeting for the ISPTSA was held last Wednesday evening with a wonderful presentation by Laura Kastner on The Launching Years. The presentation and meeting were offered both in-person and online. For those attending in person, the emphasis was on safety and social distancing (see picture). 

Take-Homes from the Laura Kastner presentation:
  • College prep should not distract from all-around development.
  • Most emerging adults are not mature until age 25.
  • Emotional Intelligence determines how you can ultimately use IQ.
 
Business voted on and approved by the membership:
