The Maine Federation of Humane Societies invites you to join us at an extraordinary educational opportunity this coming October 16th. Shelter workers, Board members, leadership staff, rescuers, animal control officers, and volunteers alike will find our conference informative and invaluable, not to mention a great networking opportunity!
This very low-cost (free if you apply for and are awarded a scholarship) day-long workshop series will teach you everything relevant to high quality sheltering, from easy ways to increase your adoption numbers to the latest and greatest fundraising tips for shelters. Workshop topics also include: how to develop a volunteer program that rocks, what to do about compassion fatigue, and the basics of building a dream team for your Board. We are offering two exciting tracks – one designed for leadership/management staff and the other for front line - with lots of new material and a line-up of fabulous nationally acclaimed speakers. Plus, this year we have a special key note address on Hoarding by renowned hoarding expert Eric Grainger. There will also be a raffle and door prizes for attendees.
The ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States have generously donated scholarship money to assist those who may need travel, lodging or attendance fee help.
The conference is $35 per person and includes a light breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the day.
You can also download the registration and scholarship forms (due in by September 30th) from this website and email or snail mail them in with your check (payable to the Maine Federation of Humane Societies) to: Me Fed Coordinator, P.O. Box 4634, Portland, Maine 04112 email@example.com
See you on the 16th!
