This event brought together state program leaders from all over the country for three days of plenaries, workshops, networking sessions and a lot of FUN!

Plenary sessions included presentations on Marketing, Standards of Excellence; Cultural Diversity and Inclusion; The Power of Community Partnerships; 21st Century Outreach; The Hearts and Minds Program; and Growing Leaders through NAMI Consumer Programs.

In addition to the plenaries, we had a number of workshops led by our attendees, as well as a “Best Practices Café” where attendees could go and network with each other and see examples of what states are doing successfully in their programs, not to mention program intranet tutorials. We were also able to host an entertaining dinner on Saturday night featuring hula dancing and lessons, and of course the “not ready for prime time” Academy Follies!
