Join CFTEA’s 24th annual leadership conference for a day and a half of development, collaborating with learning and development peers and board/career growth.  In the past year, CFTEA has developed new educational career paths, begun working on our student experience with our new learning management system and created a rich online experience at our website.  This weekend is an investment in training and discussions related to the future of learning and development.  How can CFTEA support your organization’s goals?

 

Why are we attending in September?  Lodging prices have continued to increase and the end of October/beginning of November weather impacts have resulted in a poor attendee experience.  By mid-September, school has started and the tour buses have not started their fall runs at this time.  It is different and we are hoping it will be an amazing experience for all that attend.  Resort is located an hour and a half from the Portland, Maine International Airport.

Waterslides

 

Located close to North Conway shopping and outlet malls as well as the center of town.  The hotel has miles of hiking trails, allows an extra charge to have your pet with you and is attached to Kahuna Laguna, voted one of the nation’s Top 10 Indoor Water Parks!  Plus tickets can be purchased at a discount from CFTEA.  Normally, it is $25 per day for the water park, but those attending our conference will receive the special pricing of $20 per day.  It is a great place to bring the family and enjoy beyond our conference.

 

Attendees are responsible for travel expenses.

Transformational Leadership – Part 1 with Community Advisory Council Member, Beth Leach from Partners Bank (10th Mountain Room)

How You Will Benefit

Transformational leadership is an approach to leading others that “…causes change in individual and social systems. In its ideal form, it creates valuable and positive change in the followers with the end goal of developing followers into leaders.”

In plain English, transformational leadership creates important, positive change. It is grounded in the belief that inspiring others to focus on the greater good produces a level of excellence that exceeds results achieved by other forms of leadership.

This program will walk you through the four components to transformational leadership – calling, charisma, challenge, and caring – allowing you to develop the skills and techniques required to make a real difference at your workplace and to inspire others to work toward a shared vision of positive change.

Remote Learning Case Study at New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp with Nancy Hines and Katrina Randlett (10th Mountain)

Prior to 2020, virtual learning opportunities were not fully utilized by many organizations.  And then came COVID!  With no choice but to embrace virtual learning, many of us had to learn “on the fly” how to leverage technology to deliver engaging learning experiences.  During this session, you will learn how Katrina and Nancy, through their collaboration, found practical solutions to learning needs while overcoming the challenges of facilitating a learning experience dependent on technology.   All participants will have the opportunity to collaborate and discover the “best practices” and “tips & tricks” to use when facilitating learning in a virtual or hybrid environment.

The training will consist of a facilitated conversation around strategies to employ when designing training, and will provide learners with the opportunity to practice applying these strategies to training requests relative to the industry.
