Governor's Conference: "Be The Solution"

In two weeks, the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, on behalf of Governor Mitch Daniels, will host the 2006 Governor’s Conference on Service and Volunteerism! Join hundreds of other Hoosiers at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown on April 10 & 11 for this special event. Whether you volunteer through your church, a civic organization or a national service program, this conference is for you -- 89 different seminars allow you to customize your conference experience, and come away with the information you need.

Unsure what the law says about interaction between faith-based organizations and government? Professor Robert Tuttle from the George Washington University School of Law will be covering the latest developments, in a format designed for faith-based organizations, not lawyers!

Interested in working with prisoners in Indiana? Join J. David Donahue, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Corrections, and his senior staff as they share their vision for the future of corrections in Indiana, and the role of faith.

Curious what funders look for in a good grant proposal? Join representatives from Indiana foundations (representing total assets of over $700 Million!) for an inside look at how grant makers operate.

The cost of the conference is $125, and includes breakfast and lunch both days. Student discounts are available. To register, or for more information, please visit http://www.ofbci.in.gov/ or call 317-233-4273.

In conjunction with the conference, Jim Towey, Director of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives, will provide the keynote at the Governor's Awards Dinner on Monday evening. Governor Daniels will honor volunteers who have served the state with commitment and excellence in an effort to make Indiana a better place to live. Six individuals will receive the 2006 Governor’s Award for Excellence in Service & Volunteerism. The Governor’s Award is intended to recognize the efforts of individuals and organizations that contribute their time, talents, and resources to Indiana communities. Award categories include youth, faith-based, national service, community volunteerism, service learning, and lifetime achievement. Angela Cain of WTHR-Channel 13 will moderate the award presentations, which will take place at 5:30pm at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.

Tickets for the Awards Dinner are not included in the conference registration. Tickets are $35 for those also registering for the conference, or $50 for the Awards Dinner only. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.ofbci.in.gov/ or from The Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, 302 W Washington, Room E012, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
