The future of remote work and virtual offices
William A. Draves, CAE, has been working from home since 1998, when he figuratively blew up his organization’s national headquarters and sent employees home to work. Currently his staff live and work in six states, from Rhode Island to Oregon. He gained his Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation in 1989 from the American Society of Association Executives.
He created a new system for supervising remote workers based on outcomes and results, which he and his staff have been using for over 20 years. With John Allen, he created one of the first virtual offices in the country, where staff gather almost daily for both work and social interaction.
He has consulted with organizations all over North America on working from home, communicating with remote workers, and managing and supervising dispersed employees.

As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
