Please join us for the ACA Winnekota Leadership Summit featuring Michael Brandwein!  Volunteers from Northland (Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota) and Wisconsin are teaming up to plan this event.  You and your leadership team will leave with ideas to get you ready for staff training and for the summer.  Participants can count on an action-packed day full of engaging, timely and useful information.  Bring yourself, your full-time teams, and your seasonal leaders. The day promises to get you fired up for the summer!  All sessions will be recorded and available for 30 days following the event.  

Registration includes a full day of virtual program.  As an industry, we are all facing economic challenges as a result of the pandemic.  We have priced this event as economically as possible.  ACA, Northland and ACA, Wisconsin have made available some limited reserve funds so that we can offer a subsidized rate for  ACA Wisconsin and Northland members most in need of assistance.  Please register at the rate that best fits your circumstances.  If you need additional financial assistance, please contact Betsy Thamert (765-342-1349).
