Mid-Year & Annual Conference Cancelled and Going Virtual

In a May 7 press release from the Governor's office, the following announcement was made: "The Governor also announced that large gatherings such as conventions, festivals, and major concerts and live audience sporting events will need to be cancelled at least through September. Restarting events of this size will require a reliable treatment or prevention, like a vaccine, which is many months off. Further guidance on large events will be provided in the coming months."

The OAMR Board met on May 13 to discuss the Annual Conference. It is with great sadness that I announce that the Board has cancelled the September Annual Conference in Eugene due to COVID-19. The lengthy discussion focused on the desire to provide learning to our members. Therefore, the Conference Committee, Education Committee, and Internet Committee are going to begin working on plans for a "virtual conference."  The details of the virtual conference will be released as soon as we have a plan in place. We are hoping that our scheduled speakers will still be able to participate.

As much as we are going to miss the social aspect of gathering at Conference with all our colleagues/friends, the health and safety of our members was our utmost priority.  We hope to provide a new learning experience to you all at an affordable price. 

Be safe and stay healthy!

Presented by Dr. Rick Brinkman

The 2020 Mid-Year Academy will be held on Friday, April 3, 2020, at the Valley River Inn in Eugene, from 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. This session will provide three education points for both CMC and MMC candidates on completion of an assessment. The cost of the workshop is $150.00 for OAMR members, $165 for non-members, and includes lunch.

Dr. Rick Brinkman is a motivational speaker and trainer best known for his Conscious Communication® expertise conveyed to millions of people via keynotes and trainings, radio, television, print interviews, and numerous award-winning books, videos, and audio programs. He has presented over 4,000 programs in 18 countries to top companies, associations, and government clients.

Dr. Brinkman is co-author of the international bestselling book, Dealing with People You Can't Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst, published by McGraw-Hill and translated into 25 languages. He is also co-author of four others, Life by Design: Bringing Out the Best in Yourself, Dealing With Relatives, Love Thy Customer, and Dealing with Meetings You Can’t Stand: How to Meet Less and Do More.

Dr. Brinkman’s unique presentation style of Educating through Entertainment showcases his acerbic wit and lively storytelling, engaging seven parts of the brain instead of just two from boring facts and figures. This promotes information retention and helps listeners to quickly utilize the communication skills he teaches, leaving his dynamic seminars with immediate, memorable takeaways.

Sharing human behavior insights and content-rich communication strategies, Dr. Rick helps organizations improve leadership performance, teamwork, soft skills, risk and meeting management, and teaches sales and service professionals how to apply his principles of Conscious Communication® to improve their bottom line results.

Dr. Brinkman has received numerous awards including Funniest Speaker of the Year by the Sales Forum and the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Distinguished Faculty Award. He has been featured as a communication expert in the Wall St. Journal, O Magazine, CNN, CNBC, The New York Times, USA Today, and many others.

Dr. Brinkman imparts sophisticated knowledge with a light-hearted touch. Using everyday situations, and character sketches, he creates a larger-than-life presentation that fills your people with comic and cosmic "shocks of recognition" and insight. In short, his techniques produce results-oriented action because the substance of the content is embedded by humor into memory.
