Update on the Community Group Pre-Conference!

Dear Community Group Leaders,

I’m writing to let you know more information about the Community Group pre-conference session to be held on Thursday, July 20, 2017—the day before the full IONS conference begins. The time listed for this event in the published brochure is incorrect. The Community Group pre-conference session will actually be held from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 20.

Thanks to the work of CGLC Leadership Team member Tahdi Blackstone, we are thrilled that Matt Fox and David Korten agreed to speak at the conference. Here is how the Community Group pre-conference session will work.

  • The session will begin at 5 p.m. as advertised. The first segment of the evening’s program will run until 6:45 p.m. and will include dinner. At 6:45 we will adjourn over to the room where Matt and David will be speaking.
  • When Matt Fox and David Korten are finished speaking, we will reconvene for a final hour of Community Group discussion.

We also wanted you to know that there will be additional times during the conference where Community Group leaders and representatives gather. Details of these programs are still being worked out by the CGLC Conference Work Group, based on the results of the survey that I sent out to you previously.

We do hope that you will all join us!!

Take a moment to see what Oliver Markely (Austin IONS CG Leader) and Blake Paysse (SacIONS CG participant) has to say about the upcoming conference!
