If you thought last year was motivating, wait until you see what's in store for 2020.  Featuring a theme of Dream It. Build It. Lead It., the Wilkes-Barre Connect Conference will demonstrate the power of our creative and innovative spirit in Northeastern PA.  We want our attendees to grow both personally and professionally from the conference content, become more educated on the tremendous innovation and creativity in Northeast PA, and have an opportunity to participate in community-centric workshops to solve social and economic challenges in our region.  With that being said, we now turn to you  We want speakers who can motivate and inspire our attendees...individuals or groups that are making change in the Academic, Business, or Community Fields.  And we need you to submit challenges that can be under consideration for launch during the conference - maybe its a challenge about addressing education access, poverty rates, or transportation.  Get Creative!  Click on the links below and help us create our 2020 conference!
