Save the Date for the 2019 Kids’ Chance National Conference!

Kids’ Chance of Florida cordially invites the entire Kids’ Chance Community to gather at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota, Florida on May 2-4, 2019, for the Kids’ Chance of America National Conference. Attendees are encouraged to come on Thursday, May 2, 2019, and will be welcomed with a sunset cruise on Le Barge that evening.

On Friday, the Kids’ Chance of America Board and Council of States Organizations will hold meetings and all state representatives who are attending their first KCOA National Conference are invited to attend a special breakfast in the morning. Everyone is invited to join KCOA Founder Bob Clyatt for the Founders’ Lunch and participate in discussion sessions in the afternoon. The KCOA Annual Meeting, President’s Reception, and National Conference Dinner are also open to all attendees. Neil Phillips, Founder of Visible Men and Founder & CEO of Visible Men Academy, will be the Keynote speaker at the dinner.

Once again, Saturday will be devoted to Kids’ Chance College Sponsored by Coventry, a day long program of educational sessions on topics relevant to our state organizations.  Kim Stezala, President of Stezala Consulting, LLC and Senior Partner at Design Group International, will return to present on Student Engagement. A Scholars’ Lunch with student scholarship recipients will take place midday, and presentations on financial aid, marketing, and a panel discussion with non-profit industry experts will also be included in the program.

After some free time in the afternoon, the conference will conclude with dinner and an improv show at the Florida Studio Theater on Saturday evening. Please plan on joining us from Thursday through Saturday for the full Kids’ Chance of America National Conference experience. All states are encouraged to have at least one representative attend.
