The Dallas area National Training Conference was on Saturday, April 30, 2016.  The conference was opened by the YMSL President and co- founder Pam Rosener. Pam had challenged each of the 38 chapters attending to make a chapter cheer and hearing them was a really fun way to kick off the day! Pam then revealed the YMSL 2016-17 theme, “Expand Your View.” As we celebrate the 15th year of YMSL, Pam encouraged members to expand their view in all areas of YMSL. Looks for new ideas, philanthropies and opportunities to make a transformational difference in our communities!

Pam then shared that it had been weighing on her heart that we as women often forget to take care of ourselves because we are so busy taking care of others. She then introduced Victoria Dupuy who shared her presentation of No More Broken Hearts. Victoria’s husband passed away in his early 40’s of a heart attack after having had a physical where he was declared completely healthy. Victoria began asking questions and doing research and she learned some scary statistics- especially about women! During her research she learned there is a simple, non-invasive test that can catch heart disease in its earliest stages. She encourages all women (and men) to ask their doctor about this simple test! To learn more about her story and the test, go to www.nomorebrokenhearts.info.

We then heard from national board members Denise Bothner, Ultimate Gift Chairman and Cindy Meissner, VP Boys Coordinator. Denise delivered the news that National is expanding our view of Ultimate Gift by allowing Chapters to choose any transformational project- not just those benefitting women and children and that we are expanding the time frame to complete our UG projects. Denise also showed us a few videos of amazing Ultimate Gift projects from last fall. Cindy shared her vision of expanding the view amongst the boys. In keeping with our theme, we had a prize giveaway and 3 lucky winners won the View-Master® Virtual Reality viewer –a portal to immersive, virtual reality adventures that transport you around the world and beyond. Congrats to the winners!

At the end of our general session Pam shared another matter weighing on her and that is the tragic loss of so many young men to addictions. There have been several stories of young men under 30in our area succumbing to addictions in recent news. She then introduced us to the final speaker, Michael Perron. Michael spoke from his heart about his years of addiction and his 17 years of sobriety. He shared with us ways to parent our young men and teach them self worth. He encouraged us to “speak life” to our boys- to remind them of their abilities and talents, to encourage them to visualize their future goals including lifestyle, careers,  relationships and family and to remind them how bad choices can affect those life goals.

After the general session, we had breakout sessions for each board position followed by lunch and a general Q & A session for those who still had questions they needed clarification on. It was a wonderful, informative day!

He encouraged us to “speak life” to our boys- to remind them of their abilities and talents, to encourage them to visualize their future goals including lifestyle, careers,  relationships and family and to remind them how bad choices can affect those life goals.

After the general session, we had breakout sessions for each board position followed by lunch and a general Q & A session for those who still had questions they needed clarification on. It was a wonderful, informative day!

The Dallas area National Training Conference was on Saturday, April 30, 2016.  The conference was opened by the YMSL President and co- founder Pam Rosener. Pam had challenged each of the 38 chapters attending to make a chapter cheer and hearing them was a really fun way to kick off the day! Pam then revealed the YMSL 2016-17 theme, “Expand Your View.” As we celebrate the 15th year of YMSL, Pam encouraged members to expand their view in all areas of YMSL. Looks for new ideas, philanthropies and opportunities to make a transformational difference in our communities!

Pam then shared that it had been weighing on her heart that we as women often forget to take care of ourselves because we are so busy taking care of others. She then introduced Victoria Dupuy who shared her presentation of No More Broken Hearts. Victoria’s husband passed away in his early 40’s of a heart attack after having had a physical where he was declared completely healthy. Victoria began asking questions and doing research and she learned some scary statistics- especially about women! During her research she learned there is a simple, non-invasive test that can catch heart disease in its earliest stages. She encourages all women (and men) to ask their doctor about this simple test! To learn more about her story and the test, go to www.nomorebrokenhearts.info.

We then heard from national board members Denise Bothner, Ultimate Gift Chairman and Cindy Meissner, VP Boys Coordinator. Denise delivered the news that National is expanding our view of Ultimate Gift by allowing Chapters to choose any transformational project- not just those benefitting women and children and that we are expanding the time frame to complete our UG projects. Denise also showed us a few videos of amazing Ultimate Gift projects from last fall. Cindy shared her vision of expanding the view amongst the boys. In keeping with our theme, we had a prize giveaway and 3 lucky winners won the View-Master® Virtual Reality viewer –a portal to immersive, virtual reality adventures that transport you around the world and beyond. Congrats to the winners!

At the end of our general session Pam shared another matter weighing on her and that is the tragic loss of so many young men to addictions. There have been several stories of young men under 30in our area succumbing to addictions in recent news. She then introduced us to the final speaker, Michael Perron. Michael spoke from his heart about his years of addiction and his 17 years of sobriety. He shared with us ways to parent our young men and teach them self worth. He encouraged us to “speak life” to our boys- to remind them of their abilities and talents, to encourage them to visualize their future goals including lifestyle, careers,  relationships and family and to remind them how bad choices can affect those life goals.
