Program Overview

Community of Practice sessions are amazing opportunities for any and all area leaders to gather and learn from each other. Through these monthly sessions, attendees build, share, and learn from others as a community of servant leaders.  It’s highly interactive and each month a different servant leadership topic is explored.  The same topic is covered during both sessions monthly.

As a peer-facilitated meeting, attendees can expect to learn individual and organization best practices, explore questions, share servant leadership success stories, and network with each other.   It quickly becomes a great resource for individuals to learn, share, and grow from each other.  Everyone is a leader – at work, at home, and in their community.  This monthly event is for you!
