Annual Leadership Meeting
Each year on the last Saturday in January, CHEF of Louisiana hosts the Leadership Meeting. This annual meeting of the member groups with the state CHEF board is a time to conduct CHEF of Louisiana business with the member groups. We will also use this time to give an annual review of what CHEF Louisiana has done, as well as present the agenda that CHEF of Louisiana would like to achieve in the new year. Please plan to attend this meeting. As a leader in a local group, your voice needs to be heard, and you will benefit from hearing about what is going on at the state level.
Annual Leadership Summit
CHEF of Louisiana hosts a leadership summit to facilitate sharing and communication between leaders of local groups. The summit is a two-day event with interactive games, great food, and time for sharing amongst local leaders. Topics normally include membership retention, newsletter, group activities, leadership development, website development, group communication and much more. For more information click here.
The annual homeschool convention is held each spring, and offers a variety of speakers and workshops to instruct and inspire families to excellence in their homeschooling endeavors. Legislative updates highlight changes in laws or regulations that apply to homeschooling or to families. The schedule of events is designed to offer something for homeschool veterans and newcomers alike.
A Business Meeting is held during the convention. A representative of the board of each local group is expected to attend for voting on business matters. All leaders of local groups are invited to an Appreciation Luncheon on Saturday. For more convention details click here.
