What is the Leadership Conference?
The Best Buddies Leadership Conference brings together leaders with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities from Best Buddies’ programs worldwide, providing personalized trainings that develop the skills needed to
organize a Best Buddies chapter and become advocates in the community. This year's theme, Buddies without Borders, celebrates the global reach of our mission and diversity of our volunters. Conference education will focus on the concepts and fundamlals behind leadership and advocacy on an international scale (bestbuddies.org).
Palatine High School Best Buddies sends their incoming president every year. Chapters are also allowed to send any of their officers, and buddies who are interested in becoming buddy ambassadors.
