2014 EACE Conference

Ahoy!  I am so excited for the 2014 EACE Annual Conference in Annapolis, MD.  Now that I’ve seen Annapolis in the summer and winter for conference site visits and in the fall for a weekend getaway, I’m looking forward to seeing this beautiful, historic town in the spring.  As I anxiously await the conference, I find myself encountering reminders of Annapolis and what the conference will entail.  From walking through Old Navy and seeing the nautical themed clothing this season – anchors and slipknots on shirts, boat shoes and ship wheel accessories – to finding a shopping bag from Phillips Crab Deck and picturing how much fun the Thursday night entertainment on the waterfront will be, to opening my freezer and enjoying a piece of chocolate peanut butter fudge from Kilwin’s Candy Shop, I can hear Annapolis calling me back for what is sure to be one incredible conference experience.

Just when I think I couldn’t possibly be more excited for this year’s conference, I remember that Pre-Conference will take place at the Naval Academy, the Hospitality Suite will have a Tech Doctor to help me learn new technologies and social media sites, the Entertainment Committee is planning a waterfront party and a walking tour of Annapolis with a former mayor and the Programming Committee has selected concurrent sessions, speed learning presenters and keynote speakers that pack a wealth of knowledge and inspiration for employer and college attendees at all experience levels.

As someone who has had the incredible opportunity to watch this year’s conference grow from a few good ideas to what is shaping up to be a great conference for those seeking first class professional development and an introduction to new resources and connections, I can tell you that you won’t want to miss this one.  Not to mention this is all against a beautiful historic backdrop lined with brick streets, restaurants and shops.  I look forward to seeing you there!  Register today at  Lead with the Wind in Your Sails!
