BGC National Conference

May 19th, 2015

I was honored and privileged to attend the 109th Boys & Girls Clubs National Conference in Chicago last week. Magnificent Milestones was the conference theme with 2015 being the 50th Anniversary of the National Area Council Committee, 25 years since the name change to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and 25 years for the Alumni Hall of Fame. 

Areas of focus included using data to improve Club members experience, teen recruitment, and panel discussions about best practices for Club safety.

I also had the opportunity to hear many different speakers, including leadership expert Jim Collins, author of the bestselling book, "Good to Great", Dr. Kenneth Ginsberg, Rob Manfred, Commissioner of Major league Baseball, and BGCA CEO Jim Clark. Overall, it was a truly inspiring experience celebrating the journey to Great Futures.

Great Futures Start Here!

– Rick Huisman, Executive Director
