New Leaders Council

"Gaining a Wealth of Insights" A reflection National Convention

In July, nine New Leaders Council - Orlando chapter members attended the 2019 National Convention in beautiful, but toasty, Houston, TX! Gathering with nearly 500 political and social thought leaders from across the country, attendees had the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills while making strong connections. Attendees joined national caucuses, discussed the future of New Leaders Council, and worked to develop ideas and inspiration for the future of the progressive community. 

Nicole Sims, a first-time attendee and 2018 Fellow, said of her experience, "I gained a wealth of insights on promoting an appreciation for diversity which I was able to apply at work immediately." Sims is a school administrator with Orange County Public Schools. Sims also found "hearing the voices and experiences of other women in leadership, particularly those who serve in public office," to be empowering. "It put what felt like such a daunting endeavor into perspective, and I feel like preparing and successfully running for public office is more attainable than I originally thought." 

The chapter members in attendance were Ashley Baker, Aubrey Kuperman, Charles Knighton, Danielle Groves, Jenay Byrd, Kadie Hayward Mullins, Nicole Sims, Taylor Robinson, and Usha Tewari. 

The 2019 NLC Convention will be in Des Moines, IA. Stay tuned for more details!
