Are you ready to step into your greatness?

Greatness comes from the courage to push through fear and doubt, and grow in confidence and assurance. It is in pushing through the uncomfortable and scary spaces that we hit our stride. Our 2023 conference theme, "Rockstar Moves - Step Into your Greatness' will encourage attendees to tap into their inner rockstar by giving them the professional tools they need to seize opportunities for advancement and promotion, to reach their full potential! Let's step into our greatness together in 2023!


It’s with great pleasure that we are able to announce that we have rescheduled the venue, audio video services and our speakers for September 20 & 21, 2023. The show will go on! We would like to thank everyone for your patience as we developed a new plan and to our vendors for working with us to make this happen.

We heard from many of our attendees, sponsors and employers who send staff how important this event is to the community and their organizations. In keeping with our Spark values (curious, professional, passionate, inspiring, and authentic), we knew that we must make every effort to bring the program back together for this year. It’s been a rough couple of years and this connection to community that builds capacity is more important today than ever before.

  • What does this mean for attendees?
  • If you’ve already purchased a ticket, your ticket will just roll forward to the new September dates.
  • There are a few remaining in-person tickets available, so ticket sales are now open again. Once these tickets have been sold, a waitlist will be created in the event there are any cancellations.
  • Virtual tickets are also available for purchase until the morning of September 18.


Refunds and Transfers

  • Due to the processing costs, we are hopeful that if you are not able to attend the new dates, that you will transfer the registration to another individual.
  • Refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Deadline for refund request is August 31.
  • Any transfer changes or refund requests need to be communicated with

We are working on some agenda adjustments to accommodate the travel requirements of speakers so expect a new agenda to come out very soon.

We firmly believe we’ve lived our theme this year – Rockstar Moves! Regardless of the challenges we encounter, the entire team came together to develop a plan that would allow us to push through the uncomfortable space and step into greatness.

We can’t wait to see you in September!
