The JCEP Public Issues Leadership Development (PILD) Conference registration is now open and I invite you and your members to attend this conference. This year’s conference theme is “Moving Knowledge into Solutions” and the schedule is packed full of presentations surrounding this theme. Registration and the draft schedule can be viewed at the conference website: https://www.jcep.org/pild. Early-bird registration is $410 and ends March 13th. Rooms at the conference hotel are $230 per night.

We have two amazing presentations for our keynote and capnote. Our keynote presentation will be given by Dr. Jermaine Davis, Professor of Communication Studies at Century College and Organizational Leadership at St. Catherine University. Before receiving the prestigious College Instructor of the Year Award, Dr. Davis worked in corporate America for IBM, Keebler Cookies, and Frito-Lay in the areas of sales, management, and marketing. He has authored 10 books including Get Up Off Your Butt and Do It Now, Leading with Greatness, The Art of Communicating Effectively with Diverse People, and The Quote Journal Series: 52 Quotes to Help You Succeed. Our capnote presentation will be given by Dr. Marshall Stewart, Vice Chancellor for Extension and Engagement at University of Missouri. Throughout his 30-year career, Stewart has been recognized for his expertise in leadership development, strategic planning, legislative affairs, educations, youth, and agricultural education and advocacy. Both speakers have impressive backgrounds and are sure to motivate and inspire you.

When you register, consider attending the pre-conference tour of Washington D.C., which is a great way to city some of the famous sites of this city. When registering, you’ll choose which concurrent sessions you want to attend. So be sure to check out the draft schedule before registering. You’ll also reserve your room during the registration process. The cost for the pre-conference tour is $40 and includes snacks and water. There are only 100 spots open for the tour so register early to reserve your spot.
