Leadership Development

Regional Contacts and community leaders from around the world gather throughout the year for knowledge sharing, co-learning and network building through the following events:

Workshops and presentations include not only skill-based knowledge but also higher-level learning, including the creation of business entities, insurance and risk management, grant writing, and other key organizational topics. Based on the notion that teaching and learning are as inseparable as speaking and listening, many sessions focused on peer-to-peer sharing opportunities where groups present their projects and event experiences, and highlight their successes and challenges so that others may build on those ideas and grow to the next level in their own communities.

Participation in the conference is by invitation only, but selected sessions are sometimes made available to the public via webcast or on-demand video.
