NEW YORK - May 12, 2014 - PRLog -- New York – Junior League leaders from Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States will gather in St. Louis for 92nd Annual Conference of The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (http://www.ajli.org/), from May 15th to 17th. At the event, members of the Junior League of St. Louis (http://www.jlsl.org/) and the Junior League of Kansas City (http://www.jlkc.org/) will also celebrate their Leagues’ 100th anniversaries.

The AJLI Annual Conference has always been as much a training event for League leaders as it is a business and celebratory event. But the 2014 Annual Conference goes further, said AJLI President Toni Freeman, a member of the Junior League of Charlotte. “This is all about moving us beyond reimagining leadership, beyond empowering ourselves as leaders, to Game ON…time to lead headlong into action locally, regionally, nationally and internationally…for the 21st century and beyond!”

In keeping with that theme, the event’s keynote speaker will be Rebecca D. Costa (http://www.rebeccacosta.com/), the best-selling author ofThe Watchman’s Rattle: A Radical New Theory of Collapse and host of “The Costa Report,” her daily radio show that reaches three million people via satellite. An astute observer of human behavior, Ms. Costa has tackled problems as diverse as the correctional system, environmental disasters, politics, obesity, terrorism and global recession, to name a few, and consistently demonstrated how evolutionary principles play a role in both cause and solution.

Speaking of AJLI’s strategic roadmap for dealing with change in The League’s second century as a dynamic, volunteer-driven nonprofit, Ms. Freeman added, “It is only fitting that an organization in the midst of as radical transformation as we are today should have an opportunity to hear from a woman who has built a career out of change—and whose comfort zone sits at the intersection of vitality and obsolescence. As Rebecca puts it, ‘Adapt or perish.’”
