As you read this, it’s less than three months before ACB leaders, current affiliate leaders, future leaders and young professionals gather in Omaha, Neb. for the 2017 Midwest Leadership Conference and Young Professionals Seminar. Whether you’ve been in ACB for a while and want to advance in leadership in your affiliate and/or ACB, a young person starting out in your professional life and want to obtain leadership skills as well as learn tips to achieve a good work-life balance, or you fit anywhere in between, this conference has something for you.
The conference will be held Aug. 4-6, 2017 at the Regency Lodge Hotel in Omaha, Neb. Room rates are $81 per night plus tax. To reserve a room, call 1-800-617-8310. Reservations must be confirmed by July 19 to be guaranteed the group discount. There will be limited financial assistance available for individuals wishing to attend the conference and seminar.
The Conference Plenary Committee and Young Professionals Committee are hard at work putting the finishing touches on what will be a spectacular program. Topics to be covered include: working across generations, having fun while fundraising, what future affiliate conventions may look like, networking in today’s world, and life with a guide dog. As of this writing, we don’t have our keynote speaker confirmed yet, but it promises to be someone very high profile with a strong message to share about leading people and motivation. There’ll be plenty of time for sharing and socializing, as well as activities to get everyone interacting with each other.
So come join us Aug. 4-6 in Omaha. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Jirak at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Katie Frederick, email@example.com.
