Group Says Lake City Tolerant Enough

Item: We are tolerant enough: Medical group close to coming to Cd'A for 2015 conference/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A large medical organization that wondered whether Coeur d'Alene was tolerant enough to host the culturally diverse group of professionals for its annual conference is close to booking the Lake City for 2015. Western Orthopaedic Association President Dr. Ellen Raney told The Press Friday she is impressed with the amount of effort local entities have devoted to promoting racial and ethnic diversity across North Idaho after speaking with some of them in April. So much so, she said, that an association subcommittee is recommending the WOA select Coeur d'Alene for its 2015 summer conference.

Question: Are you happy to see that Coeur d'Alene has been judged by a diverse, outside organization and been considered tolerant enough to book a convention in here?
