“Dare to Kindle Growth” has been DKG Quebec’s vision for the 2017-2019 biennium. And dare we have certainly done!
The members of the Steering Committee for the upcoming “IT’S My Day!” conference in April stepped way out of their comfort zone to create something DKG Quebec has never done. “IT’S My Day!” is not our regular evening meeting with a buffet supper and a speaker. It is, as the title suggests, a full day conference with a keynote speaker and twelve breakout sessions on a teacher wellness theme. A luncheon, hands-on activities, music, vendor tables and lots of door prizes will fill out the day. It is open to all Quebec educators and educators from nearby states and provinces, not just our own members.
Now that the tickets for the conference are on sale and registrations are on-going, the Steering Committee members can take a deep breath and reflect on the personal growth they made in order to launch the event. There were so many new skills to learn: using the ZOOM digital platform for weekly planning meetings, grant writing, speaker searches, marketing through our own videos and social media, enticing sponsors, keeping spreadsheets, using Eventbrite for on-line registration and much more.
