Last weekend, Section Officers & Advisers from all across the Central Region gathered at the Florida Sea Base in Islamorada, FL for the yearly Central Region Section Officers Seminar.

There, Section Officers and Advisers learned about the new role of the section and how it can best support lodges.  A new program to do this, the ACT Conference, is one of those programs section leaders learned about, and will be a program that sections will put on annually for lodges to attend.   ACT stands for ADAPT. COLLABORATE. THRIVE. ACT, a nationally standardized program, will focus on training lodges to thrive in elections, inductions, and activation.

Additionally, there were training sessions that touched on how to build better relationships with lodges, as well as updates from the Conclave 2.0 initiative.

Last but not least, fun was had during this exciting weekend.  Many sections came down to Florida early to enjoy the weather & everyone got to go snorkeling in the Florida Keys.  Below are a few of the sections that had some fun:
