On November 7, 2011, Strengthening Families and Communities Coalition Atlanta under the leadership of Mr. Alan Inman, co-chaired by Ms. Norma Barnes and Nancy Johnson hosted the Professional Development Conference for its Partners.

The event began with a warm ‘Welcome’ from SFCC Atlanta conveners, the State of Georgia’s Black Legislative Caucus Chairman, Senator Emmanuel Jones and Administration for Children & Families Southeast Regional Administrator, Ms. Carlis Williams. Fueled by a deep desire to give back to its membership, the Professional Development Conference was designed to include both hard and soft skills training featuring workshops that addressed: Program Evaluation, Grant Writing/Fundraising, Social Media/ Marketing, Communication Skills, Conflict Resolution and Time Management. In addition, there were two plenary sessions: Effective Collaboration and Principles of Organizational Mission & Values.

The high spirited event received great feedback from its participants.

“I found the workshops to be very informative and I can’t wait to take what I learned today back to my organization.”    – Roderick Cunningham (Beverly Cunningham Outreach Program)

“As a Presenter, I was pleased to find the overwhelming interest among the leadership of various organizations present at the PDC. The workshops were not hum-drum at all… participation among Attendees was great. I also had an opportunity to sit in on other presentations and I couldn’t believe all the relevant information being relayed.”                                     – Jahi C. Muhammad (S.I.L.C.)

The resounding response was, “We can’t wait until next year’s conference!”
