The Millennial Summit will feature a variety of local and regional speakers and panelists who will help attendees learn the best ways to develop their passions, get involved, and make an impact in our community. Speaker topics and panels will focus on one of three areas: leadership and professional development, nonprofit and community board service, and public service and advocacy.

Heather will present in the afternoon portion of the conference on Passion into Progress:  How Nonprofit Involvement Can Help.  The panel will feature an interactive discussion with the young leaders of different local nonprofit organizations and how getting involved in a nonprofit as a volunteer or as a board member can play a meaningful role in your career and turn your passion into progress.
