FEAST hosted a training for leaders where they were able to come and glean from one of the nation’s best advisors on the critical balance of homeschool leadership demands and best practices for homeschool organizations. With 19 leaders in attendance, they were able to discuss face to face with Carol any questions or concerns they had about issues specific to their group. It was a relaxing and fun time as all leaders were given a jar of honey donated by Eddie Priest and a drawing for a $99 message, donated by Ruth Perez. The perfect gift for support group leaders.

If you are a leader who was not available to come to the workshop, please feel free to go to Carol’s website at HomeschoolCPA.com. She loves homeschoolers and is called to serve us!

All homeschool leaders are invited to come fellowship with others as you glean from one of the nation’s best advisors on the critical balance of homeschool leadership demands and best practices for homeschool organizations. This will be a “potpourri” of topics, and attendees can bring up any subject they wish to discuss. Carol Topp will lead off with her Topp tips for homeschool leaders. Included are tips onboard duties, avoiding fraud, hiring workers, IRS tax-exempt status, and recruiting volunteers. A handout of tips for leaders to share with their board back home will be provided — lots of time for feedback, questions, and discussion with other leaders.
