Crossroads — Let Your Journey Begin

by Amanda Selm
Get in the driver’s seat and take the on-ramp to an outstanding weekend of individual and professional training. Plan now to attend the 2018 Crossroads Conference on April 6 and 7 in Louisville, Ky.
The 2018 Crossroads Conference is a skills-based weekend open to anyone interested in individual or professional development. Crossroads will include interstates (general sessions) and side roads (topics) targeting a range of skills. Each side road will include 3 or 4 stops (sessions) packed with how-to’s, handouts, and information you can use in your personal, professional and organizational life. Create your own unique roadmap as you choose the side roads that best meet your need.  Some examples of side roads include: looking your best for any occasion; event planning, funding, and volunteer management ideas; member recruitment and retention, team-building, and public relations how-to’s; and the basics for effective meetings and organizations. A complete list of topics and sessions will be included on the pre-registration form.
Crossroads is hosted by the Kentucky Council of the Blind. It is open to any state or special-interest affiliate, any local chapter, or any individual who wishes to attend. The conference will be at United Crescent Hill Ministries (UCHM), 150 S. State Street in Louisville. Out-of-town participants will stay at the Ramada Inn North, 1041 Zorn Ave., a short 5- to 7-minute ride from the conference site. Transportation between the hotel and Crossroads will be provided via Uber and Lyft, and is included in your registration fee.
