To honor those who serve the homeschool community, HEAV is hosting a Leadership Luncheon for homeschool leaders. Along with delicious food and a scrumptious dessert, the luncheon will feature an encouraging speaker and lots of exciting gifts!
Friday, August 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
If you are a leader in a support group or co-op (a board member, a newsletter editor, an officer, or a committee chair), or an e-group moderator–or a person ready to move into leadership–you are invited to join us.
Leaders must be preregistered for the convention in order to attend the luncheon.
Leader Luncheon Workshops
Leading with Cultural Intelligence
Homeschooling is growing more diverse ethnically, socioeconomically, and generationally. As the motivators drawing families into home education expand, the need for homeschool leaders to effectively communicate across cultures becomes increasingly significant. It’s natural to interpret the behavior of others through our own values and perspectives. This can lead to misunderstandings in leaders working with different cultures. Learning the tools of cultural intelligence can equip leaders to reach and serve more effectively.
Moms Safe Space Workshop: Building Community & Facilitating Reconciliation
Have you ever wondered why moms of other cultures do or say the things they do? Have you ever wished you understood them better? Have you ever heard something about another race that hurt or confused you? Have you ever wished you could just ASK questions in a safe space? Welcome to “Mom’s Safe Space,” a workshop where you will learn safe speech techniques to help open the conversation, build community, and experience reconciliation.
NOTE: Registration is limited to four leaders per group in order to accommodate as many groups as possible. Because of limited seating, we are not able to accommodate children other than nursing babies.
HEAV offers our heart-felt gratitude to our luncheon sponsors! Be sure to visit them in the Exhibit Hall, and thank them for making this luncheon possible.
Special Gifts and Door Prizes
We’ll have dozens of door prizes supplied by our generous vendors. In the past, leaders received a variety of gifts including hand-made soaps, specialty books, museum passes, a $100 gift certificate, a mini computer, and more!
If you are an HEAV member, there is no cost for the luncheon. If you have a sincere financial need, we are happy to provide scholarship help for the luncheon. Click here to submit a request.
The plated luncheon is FREE to group leaders who are also HEAV members. However, if you have made a reservation but cannot attend—please let us know. Call our office at 804-278-9200 so we can remove your name from our reservation list. If we do not receive your cancellation by August 5, we must ask you to pay the $20 cost of the lunch. If you notify us by this date, you will not be asked to pay the full cost of luncheon.
