New Leadership Conference Coming To The Keweenaw

The Portage Health Foundation has teamed up with local area Chambers of Commerce to bring a leadership conference to the Copper Country in September.

The Ignite Leadership Conference is scheduled to be held on Friday Sept. 25, 2015 at the Magnusson Franklin Square Inn located in downtown Houghton.

Organizers of the Ignite Leadership Conference said this event is intended to help bring resources and experts in various areas of community leadership and development to us right here.

“It is a too often occurrence that our community leaders have to travel great distances to attend a conference that provides this type of content,” said Kevin Store, Executive Director of the Portage Health Foundation. “We wanted to bring the experts here, to our community, so more people from more organizations can attend.”

This conference is perfectly suited for members of an organization that serves the needs of your community; community board members, volunteers and administrators; people that desire to serve the community and want to make an impactful contribution; and people that want to improve their leadership skills.

During the conference there will be two tracks that focus on leadership development and engagement of our community’s young professionals.

The keynote speaker of the Ignite Leadership conference is Brook Judd. Brook is a presenter from the Franklin Covey Leadership Institute. Brooke is committed to living each day with purpose. Leadership is her passion, and she is dedicated to a lifetime of personal growth in order to expand her influence in this sphere.

Registration for the conference is open to the public and only $35.00 per attendee. Registration details and a complete schedule can be obtained by contacting the Baraga County Chamber of Commerce at 906.353.8808 or email baragacountychamber@gmail.com
