Things are coming into place for the Michigan State University Fall Extension Conference next week! The conference takes place at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center Oct. 11 and 12 with virtual conference sessions scheduled for Oct. 18 and 20.
Our keynote speaker Steve Siemens, founder and president of Siemens People Builders, will talk with us about taking control of changing situations in our lives – appropriate for our theme of “Go Right Through.” The keynote takes place Oct. 12 at 12:30 during the Staff Awards luncheon.
The keynote will stress what we all know and have experienced – that we live in a world full of change. If people and organizations are going to stay on the cutting edge, they must have a willingness to take risks, fail, try new things and change. During this keynote, we will all discover that when you’re through changing, you’re through.
FEC11 is also an opportunity to renew our commitment to the Extension mission. We are privileged to be able to serve Michigan residents in ways that can improve their lives in truly significant ways. Throughout the conference, there are activities that will recharge your spirit and deepen your awareness of the purpose of our work. I encourage you to engage and fully participate in all of these sessions.
Just a little reminder: we are going “Green” so bring your nametag. See you next week!
