We usually only post 3x a week here at MO, but this is a bonus post! ASDA’s National Leadership Conference kicks off one week from today and I’d like to share some tips with you! If you’re lucky enough to be registered for the meeting, I can’t wait to meet you next week. If you couldn’t make it to Chicago for the weekend, there will still be plenty of leadership content available to you right here on MO. To be sure that you receive all of our updates, subscribe to MO by entering your e-mail address in the box to the right of this post (or click here to subscribe via RSS). We will be posting videos and key meeting takeaways to MO several times a day. Another way to stay in tune is to download the NLC mobile app on your phone. Both MO and ASDA’s YouTube channel feed directly into the app!
For now, watch this short video from the keynote speaker:
More tips for NLC attendees:
The weather has been unusually temperate for this time of year in Chicago. The current forecast suggests highs near 50 degrees through the weekend. Your best bet in Chicago is to always wear layers! They say you can experience all 4 seasons in one day here, especially if you’re near the lake (which is prone to sudden shifts in temperature due to wind). This goes for meeting attire too! Meeting room temperatures can fluctuate, so be sure to layer your business attire.
Try to split up the breakout sessions amongst your classmates. There are A LOT of options for educational sessions and it will likely be hard to choose which you’d like to attend. If you split up from your classmates and each attend one of the tracks and report back, you’ll come away with more education than you could gain alone.
Host a mini NLC at your chapter when you return. Many of the PowerPoint presentations and all of the blog videos will be available to you online after the meeting. Use these to craft a lunch & learn for your ASDA chapter and share what you found most valuable from the meeting.
