Conference Kick-Off Celebration
The celebration will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 11 with a welcome from AFBF President Zippy Duvall, followed by a live comedy performance from Second City. The well-known improv company opened its door in December 1959 and has grown to become the most influential and prolific comedy empire in the world. Famed faces of the group include Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Steve Carell and Jason Sudeikis.
The conference offers a solid lineup of keynote speakers to kick-off each day at 12 noon. The Friday speaker will be Gian Paul Gonzalez, former NCAA First Team All-American basketball player and motivational speaker to all, from professional sports teams to at-risk youth. Saturday’s keynote speaker will be Jay Hill, farmer, advocate for agriculture and social media pro.
