Together We Rise Service Project
2:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Room: Exhibit Hall 1

NAIFA is joining with Together We Rise to help change the way kids experience foster care in the U.S. During this event, volunteers will choose between assembling a bicycle or personalizing a sweet case. Sweet cases are duffle bags for children to use for their belongings when travelling from home to home. Devote a couple of hours on Thursday, September 13, and work toward making a difference in the lives of foster children across America!

Volunteers are not obligated to stay for the entire two hours. Feel free to participate to the extent your schedule allows. If you are unable to attend this event, please visit this special website  https://www.togetherwerise.org/fundraise/NAIFA  to make a donation and help improve the lives of these children.

Angie Ribuffo will present "The Art of Story Selling". Since the early days of the cave dwellers more than 27,000 years ago, we have learned through the art of storytelling. Storytelling serves as one of our fundamental methods of communication; and for women, it has been a means of educating, and most importantly building community and relationships. However, are you aware that storytelling can benefit your clients? By using stories in your daily interactions, you can sell clients on the products and services you offer by providing real-world success stories, alleviating uncertainty. Join us for this interactive breakfast session and walk away with stories you can use in your practice. We invite attendees to share their best selling stories as well!
