Keynote Topic:

Empowerment Through Employment

Veronika Scott will take you on a journey from being on track to become a top product designer to dedicating her life to the empowerment of others through her own nonprofit organization. She and her nonprofit, the Empowerment Plan, hire homeless individuals from local shelters to help manufacturer coats. Since 2012, the Empowerment Plan has provided employment to over 40 homeless individuals—all of whom have now secured permanent housing for themselves and their families —and distributed over 25,000 coats to those in need across the U.S. and Canada.

Board of Directors Installation

Also, a highlight of the evening will be the installation of April Vasta, Regional Manager, Blue Ridge Companies, Inc., as the 2019 President, along with the 2019 Officers and Directors.
