Tomorrow’s Leaders Today! 2006 DC Conference on Service and Leadership

Call for Presenters

Deadline: Monday, October 2, 2006

Each year Serve DC brings together AmeriCorps members and national service program directors in a day long conference focused on enhancing their leadership skills as well as providing interactive workshop sessions on various issues impacting the District of Columbia. This year, on Thursday, November 16th, Tomorrow’s Leaders Today! 2006 DC Conference on Service and Leadership will engage over 250 AmeriCorps members, Learn and Serve America program directors, AmeriCorps program directors, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members, and representatives from community and faith based organizations in workshops and training academies. In addition, the event will feature the Mayor’s Community Service Awards Banquet that evening to celebrate the great works of leaders and organizations.

This year’s conference is based on three main themes: Leadership, Collaboration, and Sustainability. These themes represent the continuum of growth that leads to healthy and strong communities. These themes will be woven throughout the conference: in workshops, plenary speakers, events and materials. Speakers should be prepared to submit workshop proposals that fit into these themes.
