Huether conference, Nov. 19-21, now virtual

The theme of this year’s virtual Huether Lasallian Conference, scheduled for Nov. 19-21, is “Great Things are Possible: Our Lasallian Mission Reimagined and Renewed.” The annual conference gathers Lasallians from across our region.

As we collectively navigate the coronavirus pandemic, the Office for Lasallian Education at Christian Brothers Conference, in consultation with the Huether planning committee and other stakeholders, have reimagined this year’s conference and pivoted to a virtual gathering, the first in the history of the Huether Lasallian Conference. Great care has been taken to ensure the program schedule allows for participants from across the region to come together for informative, inspiring, and knowledgeable presenters from within and outside the Lasallian family who will inspire participants to respond to challenges posed by the world today. 

  • Dr. Nekeshia Hammond, past president of the Florida Psychological Association, host of Black Women Empowered Mental Health Moment, international speaker, Amazon international bestselling author and psychologist, will present the keynote address on Friday, Nov. 20. Dr. Hammond will assist us in reading the signs of the times and share challenges, such as stress, anxiety, trauma, and mental health, facing young people today and how we can continue best serving those entrusted to our care. Participants will gain approaches to enhance the socio-emotional health of youth, especially with youth of diverse backgrounds.
  • Jeff Yalden, motivational speaker and Amazon bestselling author, will present an inspiring keynote address on Saturday, Nov. 21. For nearly three decades, Yalden has traveled across the country speaking to youth audiences, teachers, parents, and communities. As we go through these unprecedented times together, Yalden will empower us to rediscover our calling and renew our passion, conviction, and sense of mission.
