There are so many great ways to learn and sharpen your skills these days: you can read blogs, listen to podcasts, watch how-to videos on YouTube, and attend webinars, just to name a few. Did you know that Zonta District 1 can help with your continuous and never-ending improvement? How? By attending the Zonta District 1 conference! There are tremendous and very real benefits - here are just a handful:
Sharpen the Saw - While the “sharpen the saw” idea certainly pre-dates Stephen Covey, he lists it as his seventh habit of highly effective people. The idea is that sometimes you must see and hear things from a different perspective to sharpen your skills and improve your effectiveness. At this conference, you will hear from several top-notch speakers on a range of compelling topics - you are bound to come away with information you can put to good use immediately.
Networking Opportunities - Social media keeps you connected to fellow Zontians who are both local and “from away.” However, there’s no substitution for meeting someone face to face. This conference has opportunities for attendees to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones.
The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals - There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people and tapping into their experiences. It helps renew your excitement about the work you and Zontians all over the world do. Most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level
Invest in Yourself - Perhaps this one is self-evident. Venturing out to experience new things is admitting that you’re worth it. It’s admitting that you still have things to learn. That you can get better. With the $150 cost including all conference materials, Saturday continental breakfast buffet lunch, dinner with entertainment and Sunday continental breakfast.... that’s a pretty good ROI (Return on your Investment). If you are a first timer at a District Conference, you also get a $50 refund for attending!
Have Fun! - Conferences are fun! Live events with Zontians are fun! Plus, the location and timing of this conference is amazing. The GOberkshires app for your phone will help you discover all the great places to go and things to do in Berkshire County, MA before and after the conference
You work hard for Zonta, and deserve to take advantage of all these benefits. So, register before October 1st for the best rate.
