BDPA Midwest Regional Officers are excited to invite you to our 3rd Annual - Midwest Region Leadership Conference!
Our goal is to make it educational and fun for chapter leaders throughout our 15 chapters!
There is "no registration" fee for the Leadership Conference on Saturday so all you have to do is get there!
In our true Midwestern Style, we've secured the comfortable Hyatt Regency downtown Milwaukee at an affordable rate. This allows you to travel with family and friends! The hotel is top notch and offers free "full" breakfast as well as indoor swimming, restaurant and more! It's conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago, but close enough for you to enjoy a brief outing! We'll keep you busy but your family and friends can keep themselves entertained while you're busy building a legacy for your community.
Why you should attend? As a chapter president, aspiring leader, or key volunteer within your chapter you will gain critical exposure to BDPA's leadership and knowledge. BDPA is Making Moves BIG TIME! National board members, executive board, regional officers, BDPA Foundation, and other key individuals will share the vision of "One BDPA" our future competitive vision to better serve our communities and insight on how to enhance your chapter in ways you hadn't considered. A special focus on the variety of aspects related to "Volunteer Leadership" and "Board Management" are one focus area, as well as chapter management, new and growing chapter best practices, SITES, Midwest Region HSCC competition and much more.
Note: This meeting is "mandatory request" for all Midwest Chapter Presidents (or at minimum one person representing the president per chapter). All are welcome to attend. Seating will be available surrounding our President's Round Table.
