Regional Conferences

So if I’m part of one region, but will be moving to a new region next year (after conferences are over) would it be okay if I went to the conference in my “new region”? Seems like a great way to make some connections!

Hi Clare!

Attending the conference in your "new" region would be a fantastic way to make connections with passionate people in your future local community! You could even ALSO attend the conference in your current region as a way to honor and celebrate your "old" friends and community, and have one more bonding experience with many of them prior to your relocation. What an inspiring way to potentially give yourself a taste of the varied gifts and valuable wisdom from two different parts of the country!
