September 2024: “Weaving the Threads of Leadership”

By Lisa Cable

The BC Hands & Voices Chapter is so excited to be co-hosting this year’s Annual Hands & Voices Annual Leadership Conference.  We will be co-hosting along with the Washington Chapter and it will be held from September 20th to 22nd in Spokane, Washington. 

This annual conference is an opportunity for leaders, volunteers, parents and professionals from the H&V and DHH communities to gather together and learn from one another.  It’s a great chance to meet people from all over North America and to share experiences and knowledge with one another.  

I had the privilege to attend as a board member in 2022 when the conference was hosted by the New York Chapter.  It was a weekend filled with workshops, panel discussions, social events and connecting with other parents and board members.  On paper, many of the people I met are incredibly different from me.  They live in a different country, have different backgrounds and life experiences and different world views.  However, we all shared one thing in common – a passion to support and serve our DHH community and our families in meaningful ways.  And that alone was enough to create some wonderful connections. 

This year’s theme is “Weaving the Threads of Leadership”. We’re excited about the workshops and presentations that are being prepared for the conference in September.  I encourage you to check out the website for more information HERE.

We would love to have you join us if you can!
