ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
The AFHE Board of Directors highly values the role of the local homeschool group as a place where families can connect, build relationships, and encourage one another in the homeschool journey. We appreciate and esteem the men and women who lead homeschool support groups across Arizona.
AFHE hosts an annual Leadership Conference for Arizona homeschool support group leaders with the purpose of bringing group leaders together to network, share ideas, and receive updates about issues related to homeschooling in Arizona. Our desire is to equip, refresh, inspire, and show appreciation for leaders who volunteer their time serving and supporting home educating families in their local area throughout the year.
We appreciate the faithful service of homeschool group leaders to support Arizona's homeschool community!
Listen to the "Mission Possible" audio invitation that was mailed out on a CD to all leaders listed on the AFHE website.

HELP US BE GOOD STEWARDS OF OUR RESOURCES - LET US KNOW IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT
AFHE highly esteems the work of leaders like yourselves who volunteer your time to serve Arizona homeschool families. The Leadership Conference is an opportunity for AFHE to invest in you as a leader. It is our desire to strengthen and support you, equip you, share information with you, and most importantly express our appreciation for your faithful service. Because of this mission, we only charge a nominal fee to leaders to attend the conference. We spend a significant amount more than this per leader because we value the opportunity to invest in you by hosting this event.
Please help us be good stewards of our resources. If you are unable to attend, please be sure to notify us as soon as possible. Several days prior to the event, we must provide a guarantee number to the Windemere and we must pay for the number of people who have signed up for the event even if some do not show up that day. Thank you for helping us to manage our resources wisely!
