Get Involved in Planning Travelers Aid

 
We’re excited that the Travelers Aid Annual Conference in Charlotte will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12, and conclude with lunch on Friday, June 14. For more information visit the website and check out the finalized agenda.
 
Join board, staff, and volunteers as they build a vision of the Travelers Aid network, while learning best practices in the Renewing and Rebuilding the Travelers Aid Network session. Spaced over two days, you can be part of the discussion about common challenges facing our members, and you can help suggest ways to strengthen and leverage the Travelers Aid community. This two-day session will be led by David Sinski, Heartland Human Care Services, Chicago, Kathleen Baldwin, President & CEO, Travelers Aid International, and Maria Suggett, Mountaintop, Highland Ranch, Colorado. Besides, we promise you’ll have fun while doing all of this.
