Five Reasons Why SLI Is the Best Place to Be This Summer!

Have you registered yet for this year’s Summer Leadership Institute? If not, now is your last chance to take advantage of our lower rate! Registration will increase after Monday, July 8. Need more convincing? Check out our top five reasons to attend!

1. Location, location, location.

Historic Charleston is bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. Take in incredible views of the Battery and the French Quarter as you stroll Waterfront Park, and visit the many culinary jewels that make Charleston consistently rated as one of the best cities in which to eat in the south. At night, try a ghost tour for an introduction to the spooky side of the city. If you venture off the peninsula, historic plantations and nearby beaches await!

2. Red hot schedule.

Charleston can be hot during the summer, but it’s nothing compared to this year’s program! Attend sizzling breakout sessions on current hot topics, engaging plenary sessions, and networking opportunities to connect with other professionals in the IDD sector looking to share their expertise and knowledge with you.

3. Buddy program.

SLI is exciting, invigorating, and inspiring, but it can also be overwhelming your first time. With the buddy system, veteran attendees help first-timers prepare for the event, advising them on the best sessions to attend and how to make the most out of the networking events. An opportunity to make professional and personal connections with like-minded peers and professional leaders in an intimate setting designed to incite meaningful networking has never been better with a buddy on your side.
