Convention 2018

September 14, 2017

We are excited to announce that Sertoma’s National Convention will be returning to Kansas City, Missouri, in 2018. Mark your calendars for February 1-3, and plan on being at the Kauffman Foundation to attend a series of new informative workshops. Registration will be $240 and the host hotel will be the Holiday Inn.  If you’d like to book your room at a discounted rate, get started now!

In 2018, Convention will focus on developing volunteers at the club and national level. The plan is to offer three tracks – one for each area of work defined in Vision 2020.

  • Communication
  • Training
  • Growth

Communication
This session will focus on how to engage members and club leaders in a dialogue around targeted issues. It will explore ways to effectively facilitate and encourage discussion among members of different clubs. This track is a requirement for current and incoming Governors.

Training
This track will focus on building basic presentation and training skills, as well as reviewing the range of resources available to clubs. The goal is to provide every club with an opportunity to have a member focused on meeting the training needs of a club. This track is open to any member willing and capable of doing the work of training at the club level.

Growth
This training focuses on approaching potential new members, donors and volunteers. This is not club building. Although it could result in a new club, the goal is to boost involvement in support of our hearing health mission. It is the work of growing human and financial resources, not membership. This track will look at how to present and market our mission and related activities to targeted audiences. Due to the nature of this training, the number of participants will be limited.

    Would like to see a “rough” schedule as available.
    I’ll be attending — and am a growth hyper-advocate.
    Would love to participate.
