Beverage Break and Community Service

Enjoy a beverage and network with new and/or seasoned friends during the beverage break on Saturday and Sunday from 10:15 – 11:00 a.m. outside of the general sessional hall. If you are looking to help give back to the Louisville community, grab your coffee/tea/water and join other YF&R members in the Cherokee Triangle room to participate in some community service.   


Power Hours

Power Hours are a new conference feature that will get you out of your seat, talking, networking and having fun. No more sitting and looking at PowerPoints late in the day! You can now close out your day of learning with an engaging Power Hour! Power Hours will include a walking tour of downtown Louisville, trivia, scavenger hunts and a Collegiate Farm Bureau meet up.
