Dear friends,

With just four days to go, we are truly approaching the home stretch before our 2021 conference!

Next week is our 29th annual “MANOAC”, and the second time we have presented the event virtually. Earlier this year we believed we might be in person this fall, and we still hold onto that hope for our 30th conference, next year. However, we know from 2020 that a virtual conference can be incredibly inspiring and reinvigorating.

There is already a lot of activity in our virtual conference environment, and I continue to be touched by our community’s energy to convene and connect through difficult times. Right now, we need that connection more than ever.

We have prepared an amazing three-day experience for you, full of the information and resources you need to continue operating at a high level and serving your community. We are very excited to kick off this event in a few days.

If you have already signed up, we can’t wait to see you soon – send me a message in Whova! If you haven’t signed up yet, register now, and encourage a friend or colleague to join you. Let’s have an amazing three days together – connecting, collaborating, laughing, learning, and getting ready for growth.

Warm wishes,

Heather Iliff
