2017 State Conference

Join us for an exciting networking and learning opportunity: Habitat for Humanity of Indiana's 2017 State Conference! This year, we are partnering with Habitat International for a bigger better conference!

We are pleased to have a nationally recognized keynote speaker, Derek Young who will share his motivational thoughts on building strong teams. Derek has presented at other Habitat state conferences across the country, and we are excited to have him share his expertise. In addition, we will be hosting Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch at our Vendor Reception on November 15th. Here we can showcase the amazing work affiliates have done throughout the state.

Don’t miss the all-day pre-conference intensives featuring a tour of the Muncie, IN NR neighborhood, State Qualified Loan Originator Training and HFHI Volunteer Management Certification Course. As always, we will have over 30 course offerings during the regular conference that focus on key components of Habitat’s day-to-day work, like construction, ReStore, leadership, rural affiliates, family services, and fundraising.
