"As far as I knew all the women teaching the classes were famous specialists, thoroughly trained and proficient in all things Charlotte Mason and charging for their services (not volunteers paying to come! Lol Oops!). I had no idea it was all volunteer moms running this entire conference!"

AO is all volunteers all the time and always has been, and most of us are moms (we have help from a few dads, too). for further clarification, Dawn is paying to come, but the Advisory and AA who are planning the conference do have our basic expenses paid for out of conference funds. ALL the presenters are not paying to come.

I realize you're new and may not have known AO has always been entirely a labour of love, created and run by volunteers, but that's why I thought clarification might be helpful, not just for you, but for others. It also seemed to me that this statement might cause confusion, separating being specialists, trained, and proficient in all things CM from being volunteer moms. It's not either/or.

I regret you feel chastised, as that was not my intent at all.
