 Virtual Workshop: Conversations Matter

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

4:30 - 6:00 PM

MEMBERS FREE - Non-members $10

Registration deadline January 25

Conversations Matter was developed by former NCDA President Rich Feller. It is a structured, interactive virtual program that engages participants in group conversations and individual reflection for personal and career growth. In breakout sessions, we'll discuss personal qualities, strengths, desires and possibilities. The workshop will culminate in a "Clarification Statement" that each participant will receive feedback on.

REQUIRED PRE-WORK: Registrants will receive instructions and a link for a 5-minute individual event prep on the digital "Who You Are Matters" platform. Registrants must do the event prep and bring a printout to the Zoom program.
