NEW THIS YEAR “FOR SENIORS ONLY”
This year there will be a focus for graduates of 2013. If you have seniors interested in
participating in this option, please indicate on the registration form. Seniors will gather for
lunch at noon in the Convention Center with a keynote speaker on issues of transition. There
will be a “swag bag” for each with “needs to graduate.” The Seniors will have special seating at
the General Sessions. During the afternoon workshop time, there will be specific workshops for
seniors on a variety of topics from leaving home or staying home and having freedom, to
continuing your faith journey, to managing time and money, to relationships.
