Clallam EDC presents ‘The Power of Play at Work’

The Clallam Economic Development Corporation presents a session entitled “The Power of Play at Work” featuring an expert in bringing play in to the workplace and into everyday life.

Mary Alice Long, PhD, has created “Play = Peace,” her commitment to coaching and mentoring those who want to explore their playful side.

Play promotes creativity, innovation and stronger relationships, Long says, and can increase profitability and reduce costs in healthcare and employee turnover.

Sponsored by the Clallam EDC, this Power of Play session is from 10 a.m.-noon Monday, Nov. 20, in the Raymond Carver Room at the Port Angeles Main Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., Port Angeles.

“This is an important workshop held during a season when holiday and work demands can conflict and it will provide ways we can relieve some stress and be more productive,” Clallam EDC Executive Director Bob Schroeter said.

Cost is $15 for EDC members, $20 for non-members or $10 for nonprofits; scholarships are available upon request.

For more information, contact Schroeter at 360-827-5075 or bschroeter@clallam.org.

Terry Ward, publisher of the Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum, serves on the Economic Development Corp. board of directors.
