What is the definition of “Magic?” A power that allows people to do impossible things, by saying special words or performing special actions.


The theme of this year’s National Keystone Conference, #OwnYourMagic, challenges every Keystoner to make this year’s conference unlike any other in recent memory. As soon as you step out of the car, van, bus or airplane – let the magic begin! I challenge you to meet new Keystoners and share your own magic, dreams, goals and vision with them. I challenge every Keystoner to own this year’s conference by being involved in every session, supporting your fellow Keystoners, and make life-long friendships.


Going back to the definition of magic:

  • A power that allows people to do impossible things could describe your faith or belief in yourself to be great in whatever you decide to do.
  • Saying special words doesn’t have to mean “Abracadabra” or “Presto,” but could be encouraging and uplifting words such as, “I can become anything I dare to dream.”
  • Or performing special actions could mean your journey to reach your goals.


This year’s conference was especially designed with you in mind. From the Opening Session to the Community Service Project to the Smart Girls/Passport to Manhood Expos to the Gold Social to the Fun and Issue Tracks, and from the College, Career and Workforce Readiness Expo to the Three-on-Three Basketball, Flag Football and Coed Volleyball Tournaments to an exciting evening at Disney’s Magic Kingdom – there is something for everyone to participate in and enjoy. So start getting into Keystone Conference countdown mode and be prepared for the most magical Keystone Experience of your life!


Clap…Clap…Clap-Clap-Clap…..Clap-Clap-Clap-Clap…..KEYSTONE! (Repeat 3x)


Now to me, that’s magical!
