Next International Conference on "The Positive Power of Humor and Creativity" Scheduled for 2015
Plans are in the works for our next international conference that is tentatively scheduled to take place in Saratoga Springs, New York on June 5-7, 2015. Stay tuned for more information in our free Laughing Matters e-zine (you can sign up to receive this in the column to the left).

Over the years, this learning-chocked, laughter-charged, life-changing program has attracted 23,000+ attendees from all 50 states and 6 continents.

The 2012 program provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to honor Peter Funt and Candid Camera with the National Humor Treasure Award... and Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords with the Survive AND Thrive Award.

In 2011, we presented this award to Edison Pena, the rescued Chilean miner. Be sure to visit Edison and Elvis at 2011 Conference.

This world-class conference has received rave reviews (10's on a 1-5 scale) and LOTS of standing ovations over the decades. It has been indeed a personally enriching and professionally practical experience. Attendees proclaim this program as the most inspiring one ever.

God cannot be solemn, or He would not have blessed humans with the incalculable gift of laughter. (Sydney Harris)

What are the blessings that your sense of humor has given you in life?

Keep a journal of "humorous grace under fire." Here's an example: During exams for a theology class in Southern California, there was an earthquake. The professor had stepped out of the room prior to the shake. After it stopped, he walked back into the room and asked with a smile, "Which one of you is trying to cheat?!"
