2017 Fall Conference

Agents of Change

After 40 years, District 28 will present its final Fall Conference and transition to a single annual conference, held each Spring. While this may look like an ending to a longstanding tradition, it’s also an opportunity for District 28 to establish a new beginning and new traditions. Let’s look forward to the changes and challenges ahead, and let’s celebrate this new beginning together at the Fall Conference!

Our Keynote Speaker

If you are looking for a speaker who can persuade, inspire, and entertain—or if you’re looking for a trainer who knows how to make learning fun—you just found him! David Brooks is an award-winning speaker and trainer, and was the 1990 World Champion of Public Speaking. We can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us in Toledo!
