For those who have not been to or have no idea what conference is, it is simply FIND Inc.’s spring semester event bringing students of Filipino & non-Filipino culture together. Students from all 7 Districts (1-New England, 2-CT, 3-NYC/Northern Jersey, 4-Upstate NY, 5-PA/Delaware/Southern NJ, 6-ML, 7-VA) come together at a university every spring to listen to speakers to acquire information about culture, history, careers, & more. It’s a great way to find your inner motivation & apply it in every day life. If you’re looking to meet people from other districts as well, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Conference is also a great way to bond with those who are in your district after a long day of interaction.
This year’s conference:
title: Inform to Act: rEvolution.
location: District V (Drexel University, PA)
Dreams, aspirations, & opportunities are huge aspects of our every day lives. Perhaps it’s a career you’re looking to pursue, or even just a simple project to help out those who are less fortunate. Whatever it may be, one has to realize that they are not alone. This year’s conference at Drexel University focuses on providing delegates with a “hub” of information to encourage them to “act” upon these dreams, aspirations, & opportunities. Conference will help delegates realize how many connections, inspirations, & groups they have at their disposal. It takes “evolution to bring forth a revolution.”
first session: focuses on establishing the current status of Filipino-Americans today in various aspects of society: entrepreneurs, artists, & other accomplished professionals, whom will collaborate to help delegates get a grasp of how Filipino backgrounds came into play to shape the path they have taken.
second session: focuses on how delegates can move forward into the future within the paths they choose. delegates will recognize the different facets of information FIND Inc. can offer, & then be inspired to take action from what they have learned. delegates will see that their culture is an important force in shaping one’s passions & successes.
- to make the delegate aware of issues today affecting the Filipino-American individual.
- to host a FIND Inc. event that in itself shows a much needed change that the delegates need to enact within their respective communities.
- to allow delegates to exercise an increased ability of choice, by providing more topics that cater to their interest, & at the same time, be more open to inspiration from the speakers they hear from.
- to inform the delegate so they can be inspired to act, knowing who they have all around them as a resource.
- to have speakers collaborate within their topic so as to provide perspectives & workshops not experienced before.
