2014 Annual Staff Conference
From August 6 through August 9, 2014, "I Have A Dream" Foundation staff from around the country came together in the city of Las Vegas, NV, for our annual National Staff Conference. Hosted this year by "I Have A Dream" - Southern Nevada, led by Executive Director Lindsay Harper-Hume, the conference provided program, management, and development staff members an opportunity to come together for professional development and best practices sharing, as well as time to relax and rejuvenate for the upcoming school year.
During the jam-packed three days, staff members participated in interactive workshops (such as "Dreamer Accountability & Motivation" and "Making Affordable College Choices"), a keynote address from Dr. Kim Metcalf, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a tour of "I Have A Dream" community partner, Three Square Food Bank.
Affiliate staff appreciate this annual opportunity to connect with colleagues across the network in order to learn from one another and rekindle the passion for the important work that they do. Program staff members are truly dedicated to our mission, working every day with Dreamers to help them achieve their goals, and we all thank them for their commitment.
