2022 AmeriBen Leadership Conference
2022 AmeriBen Annual Leadership Conference: The Power of Together
BBBS was delighted to be invited back to the AmeriBen Leadership Conference in beautiful Sun Valley after a few years of hiatus due to Covid-19. Some of the BBBS team, Melissa, Jane, and Molly, drove up to Sun Valley and were welcomed by the amazing AmeriBen folks and their sponsors for the weekend. We spend the first night catching up with old friends and making new ones. The next day we got to hear from NBA Hall of Fame star Bill Walton, who shared some incredible stories. He was a truly inspiring speaker. We then were able to share the mission and vision of BBBS with conference attendees. We made a ton of great connections and hope those turn into future partnerships. We also met plenty of people from outside of Idaho who we encouraged to look into getting involved in their local BBBS agencies.
Attendees came prepared to explore pressing Human Resource questions, gain insight on saving for retirement, and prepare for what’s to come in the healthcare industry. They participated in motivating keynote addresses and workshops presented by experienced subject matter experts in benefits administration, retirement plan administration, human resources, and overall organizational performance. The conference had additional networking opportunities through organized activities, such as the golf scramble, trap shooting sessions, a fly-fishing excursion, and cocktail hours. It was a wonderful conference.
The greatest takeaway was the generous donations of many companies and attendees. We are proud to share that this event totaled $8,780 in donations. We walked away with a big check, stronger relationships, a wealth of knowledge, and so much gratitude for AmeriBen and its supporters. AmeriBen continues to be a strong advocate for our mission and programming. We could not do the work we do without their kind of continued support. It is so appreciated.
We are so grateful for AmeriBen’s invitation and generosity and are already counting down the days to next year’s conference. Thank you AmeriBen!
