Opening Keynote Speaker

America's Service Commissions (ASC) is thrilled to announce our keynote speaker for the 2021 Virtual National Service Regional Training Conference, Ashley C. Ford!

Ashley C. Ford is a writer, host, and educator who lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband, poet and fiction writer Kelly Stacy, and their chocolate lab Astro Renegade Ford-Stacy. Her memoir, Somebody’s Daughter, will be published by Flatiron Books on June 1, 2021. Ford is the former host of The Chronicles of Now podcast, co-host of The HBO companion podcast Lovecraft Country Radio, seasons one & three of MasterCard’s Fortune Favors The Bold, as well as the video interview series PROFILE by BuzzFeed News, and Brooklyn-based news & culture TV show, 112BK. She was also the host of the first season of Audible's literary interview series, Authorized. She has been named among Forbes Magazine's 30 Under 30 in Media (2017), Brooklyn Magazine's Brooklyn 100 (2016), Time Out New York's New Yorkers of The Year (2017), and Variety’s New Power of New York (2019).

Ashley is a proud AmeriCorps alum of the Midwest Campus Compact Citizen Scholar Program (M3C), an education award-only AmeriCorps program administered by Wisconsin Campus Compact which served 10 states, including Indiana. The program supported low-income and first-generation college students, and sought to develop a peer network that enabled these students to serve as agents of civic engagement to respond effectively to local community issues. Ashley served as an M3C AmeriCorps member from 2005-2006 as part of an after-school literacy tutoring site in Muncie, Indiana.

Join us for the conference kick-off on May 4th to hear Ashley's story! Registration coming soon.
