The two-day regional conference, “Little School, Big World,” will mark the first time the Council for Advancement and Support of Education Affiliated Student Advancement Programs (CASE ASAP) District 2 conference will be held on Daemen’s campus.

“We are so grateful to have the opportunity to host a CASE ASAP district conference and to bring like-minded students together to learn and develop as leaders,” said Kathryn Graf, Daemen director of alumni relations, who is overseeing the conference with student co-chairs Holli Nesbitt of Rochester and Kelsey Reeder of Livonia.

Keynote speaker for the 2014 conference will be creativity expert Dr. R. Bruce Baum, co-founder of Applied Learning Associates, who will speak on “Laugh Harder: Live and Learn Longer.” Professor emeritus of exceptional education at SUNY Buffalo State, Baum has authored several books and is a frequent presenter on creative problem solving, teamwork and humor, time management, and interpersonal relationships.

Conference sessions will cover a range of topics, including fundraising, recruitment efforts, time management and social media.
