RICHMOND —The East Kentucky Leadership Conference will celebrate its 30th anniversary this spring. Each year the foundation hosts a conference to recognize and reward individuals who have shown exemplary leadership skills throughout the region. This year’s conference will take place April 27th and 28th at Eastern Kentucky University.
The two-day event will take place in the Perkins Conference Center on the main EKU campus in Richmond, which is home to Hummel Planetarium. The EKLF board of directors is collaborating with EKU’s Office of Regional Stewardship to plan a memorable anniversary and celebrate the hard work and achievement of those leaders throughout the university’s service region.
“We are very excited to be hosting the 30th anniversary at EKU,” Melissa Newman, EKLF board member and Coordinator for EKU’s Office of Regional Stewardship, said. “The team at EKU is working hard to make sure this is an event that really pays homage to our region’s leaders and shows our appreciation for their contributions to the community at large.”
The conference will bring people from all over Eastern Kentucky together to network, share ideas and create a unified front to address the problems facing the region. Any person or group aspiring to take on a leadership role in Eastern Kentucky is encouraged to take this opportunity to meet with other leaders from the region.
To kick off the conference, university staff have planned a Hummel Planetarium show. Participants can also choose to visit the Madison County Airport, home of Eastern Kentucky University’s Aviation program where they will be offered plane rides and flight simulator experiences.
