On January 21st, political, civic, social and business leaders will join together across the country to begin working towards a better civic future.
Each event will last for approximately 2-3 hours, and will include things such as some introductory and icebreaker activities, a visioning exercise and collaborating on a consensus-based civic future document.
We will also go into more details about the program, and what time commitments would be required to continue exploring your civic pathways with us.
Once signed up below, we'll reach back out to you to introduce you to your local hosts and let you know the exact timing for the event (or events) closest to you.
We hope you'll join us to take the first step in January - and please let us know if you have any questions!
If you're interested in participating, but cannot make it to an event on the 21st, please let us know in the comments, and we'll get back to you!
