Region Leadership Conferences 2017: Pictures, slides and notes from each of the U.S. RLC's
U.S. Region Leadership Conferences: In 2018, the four U.S. Based RLC’s will be planned and managed by their respective regions. Alongside a working group of region and chapter leaders, we explored revising this structure and collected additional feedback in person at the events and from the chapter leader survey. Chapter leaders should expect to hear from their region leaders about the 2018 conference.

Nebraska Chapter Gives Back
The Nebraska chapter has been hard at work planning our annual charity luncheon and auction, which are held in December. Each year the board selects a charity to support. The chapter makes a monetary donation and chapter members also donate gifts which are then auctioned off to the highest bidder. Most gifts are wrapped so the winner doesn’t know what he or she is getting. That’s half of the fun. We open the gifts as they are won and then applaud or laugh depending on what’s in the box. Some great gifts in the past were the regifting of a bowling trophy that made the rounds for a few years, a redneck wine and cheese set (cheez whiz may have been involved), and old swag from ARMA conferences. We also have gifts like homemade wine, small appliances, and movie-night packages. The chapter usually has gift card raffles, and last year we had a fantastic quilt that was generously donated; it brought in a hefty amount. In the past 10 years, the Chapter has raised more than $32,500 to help local charities!
This year we’ll be supporting Lighthouse, a charity in Lincoln, NE. The Lighthouse After-School Program offers middle and high schoolers academic support, evening meals, and enrichment/recreational activities during non-school hours, Monday through Friday, 12 months a year. The program’s goal is to “Increase the likelihood of high school graduation of middle and high school-aged youth by providing high quality programming.” The Nebraska chapter believes focusing on our youth is a necessity for future growth in Nebraska, and because we’re an association focused on education, this fits right in! You can find out more details on this great charity or donate at https://lincolnlighthouse.org.
