2019 Annual Conference

October 24 - 25 | Mayo Civic Center | Rochester

challenge to change

Sometimes it starts with an internal spark. A sense that things could be better. A desire to improve upon today’s reality. Risk takers and vision seekers. Changemakers see possibility and make it true.

Sometimes it’s a change around us. Our communities, our organizations, our environment. Changemakers are ready to adapt. Ready to understand the new reality. Looking toward transformation. And ready to find a path forward.

We can’t lead every change. But we can thrive. We can challenge ourselves and others. Challenge to change.
