As heard from our Participants .  . . 

“As a first-time attendee, I enjoyed the workshop. I realize I am part of a national network of family and consumer sciences leaders. I received tangible strategies to integrate into my own personal and professional development as it relates to my affiliate leadership, teaching, and administrative responsibilities.” Dr. Cara Simmons, Georgia Affiliate

"This workshop lit a fire in me to work harder for AAFCS. Branding and marketing are two concepts I didn't think were my job. However, I am tired of hearing, "Let's bring Home Ec back," so it is my job to educated the public that I do that and more." ~ Kathleen Mellenberg, Virginia Affiliate

Visiting the evolution of leadership was enlightening as it has prompted me to think more deeply about how to lead in response to the emerging rethinking of priorities both personal, community and global. I look forward to staying involved with the AAFCS learning community. ~ Margaret Jenkins, Ohio Affiliate
