This conference is for anyone who is a leader, organizer, or community member. Our interactive program is designed for community and business leaders, elected officials, board members, agency staff, educators and others who are interested in learning more about managing and leading in organizations and in communities. This conference has something for everyone . . . from cutting edge thinking about leadership in real world situations to practical workshops. 

Our keynote speaker, Mark Homan, is an accomplished author, teacher and community leader. While he’s documented innovative ideas and strategies in his books, Rules of the Game and Promoting Community Change, his ideas are practical and ready to use in your community or organization. He’ll help us translate innovation to grassroots change, and make sure we’re developing leadership for the real world!
