Keynote Speaker- Laura Stack
AC4C 3rd Annual Prevention Conference
Wed., November 3,
In-person at MCTC
Making it Through: Overcoming Adversity with RESILIENCE!
Many of us working on prevention of substance misuse are addressing issues where at times it seems things are going in the opposite direction of what we want. One of the objectives of this conference is to help build resilience in ourselves so we can continue encouraging others to do the same. An overall goal for the conference is for participants to be inspired to keep making positive change in their communities!

At this time we are planning the prevention conference to be in-person. Recordings of most of the workshops will be available after the event. Masks are encouraged when not eating. We will take other steps to make this event as safe as possible. (5.0 CEUs have been approved by IBC, but as usual they are not available through recordings.) The conference is free to participants, with the exception of lunch. Roadside Tacos Food Truck will be available on site for attendees to purchase a meal for $10-$12. Also, there are still several free rooms available on campus at Camp Dodge for lodging the night before. Just contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need one.
