Heritage Region Conference helps chapter members revolutionize their careers


Several members of our local chapter had the privilege of attending this year’s Heritage Region Conference November 11 – 13 in Richmond, Virginia. Connie Feick, Pat Frey, Sara Jackson, Jackiedra Wilson and Joy Lovejoy took part in the two and half day event that was chock full of networking and development opportunities. This year’s topics covered everything from hard skills like grammar and crisis communication to leadership development and emerging trends–all against the backdrop of one of America’s most history-rich cities.

Special recognition to Joy and Pat, who served on the conference planning committee, and congratulations to Jackiedra Wilson, who received a Silver Quill Award for excellence in communication.
