Welcome to the 2018 Northfield Conference!
June 23 to June 29
In celebrating this conference’s 125 years in existence, it’s only fitting that our theme this year is “Resilience”! Dictionary.com
defines resilience as the “ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy.” And that’s what we will honor this summer. The conference has grown and adapted into its present state due to the commitment of this incredible, evolving, revolving, loving community. We each have stories of how we have overcome adversity, how we have “sprung back” into our newer and better selves. This summer, we have five outstanding Conference Hour speakers who will share their personal stories of resilience. Add to that a wealth of fun and creative workshops and fun evening activities (including a 125 th Birthday Party Theme Dance), we are very excited about this summer’s gathering. Join us, please!
