This is four-part series for professionals and lay leaders to attend as partners (or small groups). Registration for this series has closed. Session 1 has concluded.
Together, we will work to foster lay and professional partnerships that can get past the uncertainty and despair of the moment to generate creativity, solidarity, meaning and hope for a better future. We will study what ancient wisdom and contemporary thinkers have to say about leading in the wilderness.
Live-captioning is available through Maryland Relay Service. Generally, 48 hours advance notice is required to set this up.
In lieu of a registration fee, please consider making a gift to The Associated by visiting associated.org/give. You will also have the opportunity to make your 2021 Annual Campaign gift to The Associated.
