2018 Conference “Best Ever”
The 2018 Travelers Aid International Annual Conference held earlier this month in Chicago drew more than 100 attendees. Post conference surveys gave the event the best marks in the last five years. One long-time attendee noted “this one is the best.”
The conference staged in conjunction with Heartland Alliance and Travelers Aid/Chicago featured 19 educational sessions along three tracts: Leadership, Social Services and Transportation. There were 15 member agencies attended, including Families Forward Philadelphia for the first time in recent years. A former member, Primavera Foundation of Tucson, also attended as a guest. A number of Heartland Alliance employees also attended the conference.
Next year, Community Link will host the June event in Charlotte. Dates and hotel information should be announced in the late fall.
