Setting Your Course
“Part of our responsibility as leaders of homeschool groups is to set a course,” said HSLDA President Mike Smith. “Having people look to us for this visionary aspect of leadership can be exciting and fulfilling. But there are times when it feels like a burden, tempting us to strike out in any direction so it looks like we're doing something.
That's when we need to hit pause. We can develop a thoughtful vision for the future by asking good questions, surveying where our group has come from, considering the big picture, and setting specific goals. ”*
Join us at the 2018 OCHEC Leadership Conference as you begin Setting Your Course for your support group's future.

Your OCHEC trustees will meet up with you for this encouraging weekend. In addition to some relevant topics, we will have town hall discussions, legislative issues presented, and the annual Affiliated Groups and Trustee Meeting. As always, we will have good food and you will have plenty of opportunities to get together with other home education leaders from around the state.
The OCHEC Mission Statement continues to be: “To promote home education in the state of Oklahoma through events, communications and resources; to protect the God-given right of parents to direct the education of their children to the glory of God.”
If you are a homeschool support group leader, mark your calendar for this years event: July 27-28, 2018.
If you are a support group leader, please encourage your leaders to attend. Your group will benefit from the conference, and OCHEC will be able to better serve your group because we will have a closer relationship with your leaders.
