2018 State Leadership Conference

March 11-12, 2018 | Wyndham Garden Hotel & Convention Center


Lafayette, Louisiana – DISCOVER YOUR TRUE COLORS as the Louisiana Family, Career and Community Leaders of America host the 2018 State Leadership Conference in historic Lafayette, Louisiana! 

Nearly 400 members will Discover Their True Colors while experiencing two days of engaging leadership activities, competitive events, discovery sessions, and the opportunity to network with members from across the state. STAR Event Participants will compete for the chance to attend the 2018 National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this summer while discovery session presenters show attendees how to discover their untapped potential from within using life skills obtained through our organization.

Our guest speaker, Jessie Funk, has chosen to use her voice to inspire teens across the nation. Jessie is a former leadership facilitator for Franklin Covey and has also been a professional youth speaker for fourteen years, speaking for high schools and leadership conferences all over the country. She is a 6-time published author and her passion to help teens led her to start an international non-profit organization called “Ivy Girl Academy,” a confidence and leadership training program for teen ladies.

As a professional vocalist she has released five solo albums, has toured 36 states with the Broadway musical “Footloose,” has also been hired for hundreds of recording sessions as a studio vocalist including songs heard on TV’s “America’s Got Talent,” ESPN and “The Biggest Loser.” Jessie has walked away from three record deals unwilling to sell her soul for fame. She chooses to use her voice to lift and inspire in positive ways.

We look forward to welcoming Jessie to Louisiana and we cannot wait to bring members our best conference yet.
