First General Session
Opening of Contest
Meet the 2018 State Officer Candidates
Keynote: Magician Jonas Cain

Jonas Cain is facilitator of fascination using his skills as a magician and public speaker to communicate positivity principles that turn adversity into possibility. For over two decades corporations, organizations, and individuals have used his engaging programs to equally perform, inform, and transform.

In 2017 he became the spokesperson for Hashtag Positivity, a company whose mission is to share positivity by encouraging empathy, kindness,  perspective, and confidence.  His latest book, Are Your POSITIVE?: Rethinking Positive Thinking, was published earlier this year, and his weekly video series, Magic Words: Principles for Conjuring Personal & Professional Growth, is one of the best sources to engage in ongoing empowerment and encouragement.

Jonas makes Massachusetts his home and is passionate about traveling to engage, empower, and encourage his clients to excel in their work, in their homes, and in their lives.  In his spare time he enjoys hiking, playing the saxophone, jumping out of airplanes, and spending time with his cat, Pumpkin.
