Thank you to Murray State University for hosting the 2014 ACHE South Region Conference! Over 65 people descended into Nashville to learn new skills and network with colleagues. Nashville: A Sound Investment was true to its name as there were many speakers to glean interesting, pertinent, and thought-provoking information from.
Dr. Robbie Melton demonstrated so many new types of technology that the audience was spell-bound. From talking pajamas to contacts that read blood sugar levels to a mobile device that moved around the conference room, she had it all. She also let us know how all those fun devices can assist us in presenting quality education for our students. Phillip Van Hooser discussed leadership qualities and the importance of treating people well. His Five Lessons About the Way We Treat People was informative and thoughtful.
This year, the Leadership Panel comprised of Dr. Susan Elkins, Dr. Alana Hamilton and Dr. Paul Starkey. They each shared their career paths and how they were nurtured by the adult and continuing education field.
There were 15 concurrent session presented by leaders in ACHE South with interesting programs, marketing ideas, and leadership pointers.
