Our Next Conference

Our next Leadership Advance Conference is December 2-3, 2020.

At last year’s Leadership Advance Conference, amidst a time of continued cultural change—we turned our listening outward to the wisdom of our neighbors—people outside our tradition or everyday experience— and heard what they brought to bear.
