North Dakota Dollars for Scholars Annual Conference

North Dakota Dollars for Scholars chapters are invited to gather, network, learn and share at the 2018-19 annual conference. After much discussion and reflection, we will be hosting one conference this year in a new location: Carrington! We hope that by having one large, central conference more members from each chapter will come together from across the state and share best practices. It will allow us to maximize our event budget and provide excellent programming. Your chapter is able to use the annual conference as one of their three Community Educational Opportunities.

While we truly hope to see as many of you as possible at the annual conference, we understand there will be instances when attendance won’t be possible. With the roll out of the Community Educational Opportunities in 2018 your chapter will still have the opportunity to receive the $1,000 scholarship from NDDFS courtesy of Bank of North Dakota (BND) by completing three other community educational pieces (as a reminder, you can find the Community Educational Opportunities here).

Agenda information will be provided when it becomes available. BND and NDDFS will be hosting an informal social on Friday from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Chieftain with appetizers provided. We look forward to having the opportunity to visit with all of you that evening!
