We are excited to have Jerry Ackerman kick off the conference with a message about “Servant Leadership-Moving Two Inches” that will motivate you and make you laugh. Our luncheon keynote on Tuesday will be nationally recognized expert, Barbara Coloroso, who will explore “The Bully, the Bullied, and the Not So Innocent Bystander.”  To close out our conference, we are honored to have Hasan Davis, a former Kentucky Commissioner of Juvenile Justice, who will entertain and inspire with his personal story – “Pathway from No Way: A Transformational Journey from J.D. to J.D.”
