Exactly the opposite: doing the same things and expecting the same results…. Simply put, what motivates Traditionalists and Boomers probably won’t work at all with Gens X and Y… but, if not that, what will? 10:45 – 11:45 am Breakout 6 Recruiting and Retaining a Gen Y Workforce, Big Spring D Part 2 – Jeff Bormaster Social Media and Boundaries for Your Agency, Big Spring C Staff and the Foster/House Parents You Work With – Dr. Terry Casey The development of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms has created a whole new set of boundary-­‐related questions for child care agencies, staffs, and foster/house parents… not to mention the children in your care.

NOTE: This session will not be audio taped. Big Spring C Mac Otts, author of Better Than Them, The Unmaking of an Alabama Racist, shares his story of being raised in the Deep South during the racially-­‐charged ‘50s and ‘60s.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 6:45 – 7:45 am CCFSA Board Meeting and Breakfast Big Spring A1 7:30 – 8:00 am Registration for Day Three Participants Big Spring Foyer 8:00 – 8:25 am Morning Devotional The Story of Three Boys – Doug VanDyke and Lee Milam Big Spring C/D 8:30 – 9:15 am Plenary 3 The Spiritual Side of Your Millennial Staff, Foster/House Parents and Volunteers – Brandon Pressnell Big Spring C/D Millennials have been characterized by some as “a generation without religion.” The description “spiritual, but not religious” may be more accurate. Either way, it’s clear that this group – regardless of whether you’re talking about commitment to a job or their “time over money” giving patterns – is different from any group who has come before them. What does that mean to those of us from the faith-­‐based and non-­‐profit world? 9:30 – 10:15 am Breakout 9 Look Before You Leap: Things to Consider Before Seeking National Accreditation – Gayle Watts and Jeff Bormaster The Future is NOW: Learning Disabilities and Home-­‐Based Accommodations for Helping Professionals, Part 1 – Marcia Ramsey and Amy Holmes Before you as an agency leader decide to pursue national accreditation (e.g., COA), you need to know several things: (1) what accreditation will best serve your agency, (2) what will your agency gain by accreditation, and (3) what will accreditation cost your agency in terms of startup AND maintenance. Big Spring C Rather than waiting for our schools to diagnose and then “fix” the children in our homes who struggle with educational concepts like reading, wouldn’t it be nice for our foster and house parents – even our frontline staff members – to be equipped to help them too? Marcia and Amy will provide “hands-­‐on” training that can be taken home and applied tomorrow, not to replace our schools or counselors but to supplement and support them. 10:30 – 11:30 am Breakout 10 The Impact of Obergfell: Same-­‐Sex Marriage and Faith-­‐Based Agencies/Institutions – Matt Vega Big Spring D Big Spring D Not since Roe v. Wade (1973) has a Supreme Court decision divided our nation and impacted faith-­‐ based organizations like Obergfell v. Hodges (2015). From the way we deal with employees to the way we work with potential clients to an agency’s policies and bylaws, the legitimization of same-­‐sex marriage continues to challenge faith-­‐based entities everywhere. The Future is NOW: Learning Disabilities and Home-­‐Based Accommodations for Helping Professionals, Part 2 – Marcia Ramsey and Amy Holmes 11:30 am Hotel Checkout – Hard Deadline 12:00 – 1:30 pm Closing Luncheon and Keynote 2 Now It Dwells in You (2 Tim. 1:5, 3:15) – Dr. Harold Shank Big Spring C Big Spring A1/A2/B
