What if I do not see instant growth in my techie from ICCM?
You probably will not see instant growth, the same way one often does not see instant change when someone becomes a Christian. But it certainly does affect them. You will most likely see the change when a big issue comes up. That is often when they will need to ask for advice, and when their access to this amazing community really reaps the longer-term benefit. Sending someone to ICCM is an investment into your techie. They are getting involved in a community as well as learning something. Please do not think that the only thing they will get from the conference is from the teaching or workshops; most of the benefit comes from the long-term connections.
