April 2022 NAJA News

Annual Education Conference 2022 - Mobile, AL - April 22-24

The 2022 National Auxiliary’s Annual Education Conference will be held in Mobile, Alabama from April 22 - April 24. This year's conference will focus on President Gayle Brown's 2021-2022 theme, "Hope for the Future." We are excited to offer Breakfast Roundtable Sessions for attendees interested in a smaller learning experience focused on a particular topic of interest, and the conference will include a First Year Active workshop.

AEC will kick-off with the Plenary Session at 5:00 PM on Friday and will conclude on Sunday morning with our AEC Service Project and workshops for different Board positions. The Business Meeting will be held Saturday at 3 PM, and the evening will conclude with the Awards Banquet and Parade of Presidents. Don’t forget to bring your Mardi Gras mask for the Awards Banquet!

We are thrilled to welcome Heather Land as our Plenary Speaker! Heather is best known for her stand-up comedy tours "I Ain't Doing It" and "Unfiltered." She tells it like it is with her Southern style and sarcasm! She has become a “viral phenomenon” with over 300 million social media views!

Sheila Farr will present “Fitting it All In: Becoming Unapologetically You” during one of our breakout sessions Saturday morning. Work/Life balance is something we all need more of these days! Sheila is an eternal optimist, and the owner of Gulf Coast Training & Education Services, LLC.

A floral design demonstration and a Bottle and Brush class are two ticketed events that will be offered to AEC attendees. Both are great times to relax and enjoy time with your JA sisters. The NAJA Foundation will have a Wine Pull and Foundation Raffle that will open on Saturday morning. Shopping opportunities will be available throughout the Conference at the Galleria and NAJA Store.

Share the news about the Conference with your Chapter! We are happy to have AEC in person in 2022, and look forward to seeing you in Mobile!
