Ist Latin American Vetiver Conference - "A green hope"

Monday, April 5, 2010

Carolina Rivas Berrios is the coordinator for the Latin America Vetiver Network and the editor of the blog - Vetiver Latina.  For the past 18 months she has been working on launching a Latin American Vetiver Conference.  With support from TVNI, Paul Truong and our Patron - Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand, the conference will take place in Santiago, Chile from October 14 - 16 2010.  Well done Carolina!!  The conference will be an important milestone in the adoption of VS applications in Latin America, particularly as we see increasing interest in the technology in all countries of the region.


Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand will attend and participate in the conference - she is well versed in the technology and like her father, the King of Thailand, is committed to seeing the technology extended.  Paul Truong, Jim Smyle, and Roley Noffke, all TVBI Board members and vetiver practitioners will attend, along with leading vetiver specialists from the region. see program 


I highly recommend the conference - it is a great venue for existing and potential vetiver users in Latin America to get together and exchange experiences and ideas.  What you get out of the conference is worth far more than the cost of getting there.


I would ask those of you who know people who might be interested to pass the information about this conference to them.
