We'll also be having our final breakout session Saturday morning. Right after the breakout session, we will have our Regional Meet-ups so you can be sure to not leave the conference without having met someone from around your home area. This part of the conference is so important as we need to make sure to kindle the relationships with those immediately around us. So look for the Regional Meetup signs in the sanctuary of the church as we head into our final keynote address with Todd Wilson.  It will also be during this time that we hold our "Buy it Here!" drawing.

INCH 2023 Was a GREAT Success!😁
INCH Conference 2023 is in the books!     What a wonderful and blessed time we all had at the 2023 INCH Conference. This year, we marked 40 years of Michigan homeschoolers coming together and worshiping God. It is our prayer that you left Lansing feeling encouraged, inspired, and remembering why you decided to homeschool. If you were unable to join us, we are sorry you missed such a blessed weekend. Congratulations once again to Vicki Girard, 2023 recipient of the Marcia Holmes Memorial Award. Vicki has overcome many obstacles and challenges, yet has persevered in the face of tragedy and continues to pour into the homeschool community around her. THANK YOU, Vicki. May God continue to give you strength and courage as you walk this path with Him.  Our Young Entrepreneur Fair was a HUGE hit! We had so many amazing items kids made and built so they could sell them. They learned many things through this opportunity. Thank you to all the parents who helped make this possible for our very young business men and women. The College and Career Fair was bustling with activity this year. We had over 30 colleges and career opportunities ready and available for students to talk with. It was a great time of exploring all the options students across the state of Michigan have as they prepare for future endeavors. What a wonderful line up of speakers we had this year! Everyone who attended the conference had some very hard decisions to make as they chose which breakout sessions they'd like to attend. The exhibitor halls were packed with activity and the new setup this year gave many people a chance to peruse on a more consistent basis as they went from one breakout session to the next.  What a joy our Family Night was on Friday as well. We had a great keynote address from Todd Wilson followed up by a fantastic and hilarious performance by Bob Cates from Comedy in Motion. It was such a joy to sit back and laugh with all those who were able to be there. Mark your calendar for the 3rd weekend of May in 2024 and plan to be with us next year!! **For those who attended the INCH Conference this year, be on the lookout for our conference survey. The link for that survey will be sent out in a separate email. We'd love for you to take a few moments and give us your feedback as we begin planning for INCH 2024!**   Conference Recordings Available. If you were unable to join with us in person, you have the opportunity to purchase all the sessions here. MiCHN 2023 COMPLETE Convention Set: $79.00 Individual Sessions: $4.00   A huge THANK YOU to all of this year's conference sponsors! Without you, this annual event would not be possible. Thank you for all your contributions and support. The homeschoolers of Michigan appreciate you!
