The theme for this year’s 2016 Great Lakes Conference is Lighthouse Organization Excellence through Resilience and Change.
“Restoring, maintaining, and welcoming the public to enjoy our lighthouses is a process. Developing organizational excellence in times of change requires resilience and expansion of roles, skills and “tools.” Organizations working with diverse people and issues need talented leadership to facilitate volunteer engagement and investment. Join us to explore ways to meet evolving contexts and challenges!
Keynote speaker Jeff Shook will describe and show behind-the-scenes images on how he advised Disney during filming of The Finest Hours; The Real Story as well as supplying lifeboats and Coast Guard artifacts to enhance the film’s authenticity. Hear parts of the true story that are not in the film and learn how they made such a challenging rescue come to life on the big screen! This is truly a one-of-kind experience you won’t want to miss!”
Sponsored by the Michigan Lighthouse Alliance, the conference will take place May 15 – May 17, in Traverse City, Michigan.
