- Mar 6 - 9, 2014
Our sixth National Chapter Conference March 6-9, 2014
Watch for details on registration coming soon
Hand in Hand - Together We Can!
The 2014 National Chapter Conference will be held at the Hilton in Orange County CA. Make arrangements with the hotel and sign up on line to secure your place. It is a great way to acquire the skills needed to run a successful USA Dance chapter.
What are your board members supposed to be doing? Come learn how to get them enthused about participating in the chapter functions.
This conference is a great way to expand your knowledge, meet new friends and have lots of fun. Prepare a checklist to help you set your goals and priorities for the conference.
Getting There: Register for the hotel; book your travel and transportation plans. (Each chapter will receive 50% rebate for transportation for one participant).What to Bring: A sweater or jacket (it can get chilly inside the classrooms), a nice outfit for the evening dances, notebook, paper and pens, business cards, chapter newsletters and don’t forget your DANCE SHOES.
Plan ahead because your time is limited, you will need to prioritize your tasks.
Seminars: The backbone and primary reason for the conference is, of course, the seminars - most of which offer you important information to make your chapter stronger.
Highlights: Come learn and have fun! I am looking forward to meeting you.
Take your chapter to new heights.
Training is only as good as the plan you have for implementing it. There are main strategies you can use. Turn what you learned at the conference into action. Research shows that unless you use a new idea within 24 hours of learning it, you'll probably forget what you have learned.
Set goals: To get the most out of the program, be clear on what you intend to gain. You are much more likely to follow through if you set goals now.
Reward yourself: There's truth to the maxim, "'what gets rewarded gets done." If your goal is to create a new system based on what you learn at the conference, celebrate when the system is in place. Whatever you do, don't let your progress go unnoticed - even if you're the only one who's noticing!
Give yourself the incentive you need to practice what you learn. Ask, "How does this apply to me?"
Relate what you learn to yourself. And don't settle for 'abstract knowledge.' Keep your current circumstances, conflicts and interests foremost in your mind. As you learn new approaches and techniques, relate them to your own situation. You’ll be amazed at how easily and quickly you'll implement new ideas when you know exactly where to put them in action.
Enjoy yourself: Come relaxed and you'll leave refreshed, inspired and recharged. Put your worries on hold for the next few days. This is your time. Get all you can out of it and have a great experience!
Congratulations ... for making this investment in your Chapters development.
Now relax, open your mind and get ready to become more effective.
