"Discovering Keystones to Success"


State Employees Leading Colorado (SELC) will be hosting the 2018 Spring Conference May 17th and 18th in Keystone, CO at the Keystone Resort & Conference Conference Center.   


We are excited to announce our opening Keynote speaker for this year's conference - Dr. Mark S. Benn is a licensed psychologist and assistant adjunct professor at Colorado State University.  Dr. Benn received his doctorate from the University of Northern Colorado, and has traveled extensively educating and entertaining audiences about understanding and reducing prejudice.  He has found a way to combine the talents of a university professor and storyteller to deliver difficult messages about prejudice, cross-cultural communication, gender roles, workplace mediation and personal struggle. Dr. Benn will take you through the journey of his life - helping you relate to your life - and he will illustrate the complexity surrounding individual, societal and work place ethics.   www.markbenn.com

The scholarship is available to Colorado students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year of undergraduate study at a State supported institution of Higher Education. The scholarship was established to honor a past president of the Colorado Fiscal Managers Association (CFMA) and former Deputy Director of the Colorado State Lottery who lost his life while serving the citizens of Colorado.

We will again be auctioning off themed baskets, and are asking for basket donations for the auction. It would be wonderful to have folks representing all of our departments or Higher Education institutions donate baskets for this fundraising effort.
