Dear Pacific Western Congregational Leaders,
I am happy to announce the launch of Leadership Experience 2019—a pilot leadership development program in the Pacific Western Region.
This pilot program will be a hybrid in-person/online learning experience. Participants will meet for a weekend retreat in one of three locations in January 2019. Participants will then have eight follow-up 90-minute Zoom video conference calls February through May. There will also be an optional gathering for all participants at General Assembly in Spokane, Washington, in June.
This program will be ideal for board members or other individuals in leadership positions within a congregation. Congregations are also strongly encouraged to send people who are being considered for future leadership positions. Ministers and other religious professionals may also attend.
Participants will gain a deeper grounding in Unitarian Universalism and will also gain knowledge and skills regarding mission-focused leadership, systems thinking, change management, anti-oppression and multicultural transformation, and conflict transformation as well as other topics.
