There’s a good reason to save the dates and make plans to join several of your ACB colleagues in Omaha, Neb., Aug. 5-7, 2016. No, the college football season isn’t getting off to an early start, and no, help is not needed de-tasseling corn or anything like that. Leaders and aspiring leaders will come together for the 3rd Midwest Leadership Conference.
We will gather at the Regency Lodge Hotel in Omaha. Room rates are $81 plus 18.61% tax per night. To make reservations, call 1-800-617-8310 and mention you are with the Midwest Leadership Conference to get this rate. You can also make reservations online at https://bookings.ihotelier.com/bookings.jsp?groupID=1611410&hotelID=75099.
There will be programming of interest to leaders at all levels. From a mock election, where we’ll pick our football coach, to discussions of what a strong affiliate should have, to discussions about membership, fundraising and other things, it’ll all be there. A very special feature this year is the Young Professionals Seminar, which will be held in conjunction with the Midwest conference. Young, aspiring ACB and community leaders will have the opportunity to participate in programming geared to their interests, as well as to interact and share with other conference attendees. For our Saturday night banquet on Aug. 6, stay tuned as we have invitations out to two potentially high profile keynote speakers.
We hope to see many of you in Omaha. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Jirak, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone (402) 553-7119. Questions specifically about the Young Professionals Seminar can be directed to Sara Conrad, email@example.com. Let’s all head to the home of the Cornhuskers for some fun, networking and learning in early August.
