2018 Testimonials

"Fantastic first experience!!"

"I am again recharged and willing to help however I can."

"Well planned and very well executed. Although it was aimed at the District leadership level the value to Chapter leaders was crystal clear."

"The summit was just outstanding...Working with our LOPT talented team and presenting Leadership topics to avid listeners was a valued confirmation of the Healthy Chapter Initiatives, and to the dedication of the chapter leaders. Conversations were non-stop with attendees, presenters and staff, and ideas flowed freely. Added to that, the chorus experience alone, with leadership coaching during rehearsals by Donny Rose as well as stellar directing by both Donny and Steve Scott, was worth the weekend in new learning techniques for choruses. I'd recommend anyone thinking about joining district or chapter leadership, or are current leaders, should attend to get fresh, broad new ideas of what can be accomplished with the energy of BHS leaders behind them!"
