Each year, we bring the county network teams together for a deep dive collaboration session.  Our annual summit was previously scheduled for an all day event on March 16th at The McConnell Foundation. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our full day packed agenda at the last minute. We are excited to announce we have rescheduled to a virtual event on  September 25, 2020, 9:00-11:30 PST .
We will learn communication strategies from our  Hattaway Communications  partner provided as part of our  Lumina Talent Hub  designation.
Please register for this event with the link below so we can get an accurate picture of who will be in attendance.  In order to be the most effective, please ensure that members of your county network teams are in attendance.
