2020 Virtual Fall Conference & Membership Meeting “Staying Connected”

Featuring Keynote Speaker Charles Marshall
Real Heroes Don’t Wear Spandex
How to positively impact the lives of others without wearing a costume

In real life, heroes aren’t rock stars, movie stars, or sports figures. Real-life heroes are people who make a difference by believing in, and investing in, the lives of those around them. In this thoroughly inspiring and uplifting program, Charles publicly honors people in your group for their contributions and recognizes them as examples of what real heroes are. Learn how to engage the Power of Belief to revolutionize your organization!
