Impact of JFLAC Conference
In my view, the greatest benefit of JFLAC is the relationships developed. Through my various leadership experiences and continued pursuit to improve my leadership, it is extremely clear to me that successful leaders value and promote meaningful relationships. The relationships built during JFLAC make me excited to attend conventions each year, they engage me in the Academy, they push me to stretch farther and do more for my profession, but most importantly they encourage me to keep working because our future is brighter if we work collectively and collaboratively.
