Caveat Lectores on the Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat

This is the year’s first official announcement of the 2010 Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat. Lectores Labor Consulting has been hosting the ever popular retreat at the Devil’s Neck Conference Center on the shores of Lake Tsala Apopka for who knows how long.

This season, we have an unusual program. Normally, we only allow labor advocates and leaders to attend the Devil’s Neck Conference, but this year we are opening the program up to management as well. Call us ambi-educational.

The regular price of $1595 (check or PayPal) for the workshop and materials has not changed since last year because of the economic conditions. However, Lectores Labor Consulting has decided to offer an enhanced version for those who can afford to go first class.

This year, for only $500.00 more, you can get all of the instructional literature along with T-shirt, embossed ball cap and the coveted Lectores Labor Institute Graduate Certification without attending a single workshop. All you have to do is send your tuition ($2095.00 in cash) along with a digital picture of you dressed in a blue open necked shirt. Lectores will Photoshop your image into the group picture and issue your certification, group picture and receipts for all expenses by return mail. What could be a simpler way to move ahead in your business without making any effort?

For you labor leaders who feel the need to actually attend, there will be three days of intense study set in an atmosphere created by the ambiance of the newly renovated 1940’s era Florida Cracker fishing cabin known as the House on Devil’s Neck. It is nestled under the shade of native Bald Cypress and Live Oak trees. Accommodations have been described as “primitive but unrefined.” Tents are optional. The only bed is already reserved. Mosquito repellent is included in the tuition for those who actually attend. More conventional accommodations are available at Gator Bait Lodge, Lake Tsala Apopka, Florida.

Classes begin at 6:00 am and end at noon each day leaving ample time to spend studying for the next day’s lectures or not. In the evenings, we will gather around the stone fire pit to burn trash, join hands and sing the familiar semi religious folk song of murky origins Kumbaya. This wonderful standard campfire song in scouting and the YMCA is part of the title of Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat. Bring your acoustic guitar, mandolin or banjo and play along.

Call Jeff Carnes at 813-240-8165 for reservations or explanation of the true nature of this offer.

And Oh yes, Have a nice Day?
