This year, our keynote speaker is a crowd favorite from the 2019 Convention, Dr. Jody Janati. Her no-nonsense approach will keep you engaged (and laughing) as she hits home some solid tips for beefing up your public speaking skills. Don't miss it!
We'll also use this time to help plan out your 2019-2020 chapter season. Get together with your other chapter leaders, brainstorm the who, what, where and when. Network with other chapters to share ideas get the creative juices flowing.
In the evening, sit back for dinner and our Speaker Showcase where you'll get previews of the hot up-and-coming speakers you may want to book for your chapter.
Register by Tuesday, May 28.
