If you care about the world around you and want to do your part to make it a better place, you won’t want to miss this interactive weekend. Just listen to what last year’s attendees had to say about Choosing to Lead:
“It was a fantastic event! Life-changing. I can’t wait for next year!”
“Incredible speakers and awesome conference-goers!”
“Hands-down, the best conference I’ve ever participated in: engaging, inspiring, and thought-provoking.”
“So inspiring…now I feel ready to go out and change the world.”
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve expanded the conference to feature two days! Join us Saturday at the Jekyll Island Convention Center for interactive workshops, coastal advocacy training, and inspirational speakersacross five interactive tracks. On Sunday, we’ll go behind the scenes at nearby coastal destinations, participate in a dialogue about community needs, and plan coastal action projects with NEW half-day field trips and planning sessions!
CONFERENCE TRACKS: Stay within one focused track, or pick and choose the workshops that interest you most. Either way, you’ll leave Choosing to Lead armed with new knowledge, skills, and the motivation to make a difference for the coast you love. This year’s conference tracks include:
Friday Night: Network! Let’s kick off Choosing to Lead with some fun! Join us the night before the conference to network and get to know your fellow participants. Look for One Hundred Miles staff and committee at the Hampton Inn and Suites lounge at 7 pm. Good company and engaging conversation provided.
