Kentucky--Register Now for the CHEK Leadership Summit!

Dear Members and Friends;

Christian Home Educators of Kentucky is hosting their annual
Leadership Summit on February 2, 2013. This event is open to all
support group leaders, co-op leaders/teachers, and pastors. If a
leader is unable to attend the Leadership Summit a representative from
the group/co-op can attend in his or her place.

This year's theme is Choose Ye Whom You Will Serve. The CHEK
Leadership Summit will be in the Nolin RECC Conference Room in
Elizabethtown, Kentucky from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both breakfast and lunch
will be provided. There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend, but
there is a no-cost option as well. You can register for the event at: .

Several speakers are scheduled to be at the 2013 CHEK Leadership
Summit, including a few state legislators and HSLDA Staff Attorney Tj
Schmidt. Tj will be sharing some of the challenges and cases
homeschoolers have faced across the state this year. He will also
discuss some of the threats to homeschool freedom and parental rights
that HSLDA is monitoring on a national level. Topics will include the
Common Core Standards Initiative, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of
the Child, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities, and the Parental Rights Amendment.

The CHEK Leadership Summit will also have a "town hall" session that
will provide you with an opportunity to meet with other homeschool
leaders from across the state, ask questions, and exchange ideas. When
you register for the CHEK Leadership Summit you will have an
opportunity to suggest topics for the town hall discussion time.

Please plan now to attend this great leadership event! If you will be
traveling from a distance may we suggest using your HSLDA PerX
membership discounts for Choice Hotels at (two hotels in the area) and
save up to 20%.

We hope to see you at the 2013 CHEK Leadership Summit on February 2!


Thomas J. (Tj) Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney
