Join Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake's Leadership Circle to learn, share, and support each other in our faithful journey to ensure clean water for all.
- Clergy and lay leaders will begin by attending the Chesapeake Watershed Forum together, held in November in Shepherdstown, WV (about 20 minutes north of Harper's Ferry). November 2-4, 2018. Full package is all-day Friday and Saturday. Sunday is typically an optional field trip. You can also just register for the Partial package which allows you to just come for Friday, or Saturday without staying overnight. The Forum is held at the National Conservation Training Center, which is a beautiful facility with wonderful accommodations onsite. Each individual will need to cover their own fees associated with registration and accommodations at the conference, but some limited scholarships are available.
- At the Forum you will pick from a huge selection of breakout sessions to learn about priority watershed issues and solutions.
- The leaders in this circle will join Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake for lunch or dinner on the first and/or second day of the Forum -- let's start building and strengthening our relationships with one another!
- In the weeks after the Forum, we'll continue the conversation to help you transfer what you learned to your unique congregational settings. This could take the form of monthly calls, virtual meetings, and/or an occasional dinner or in-person meeting. As a group, we will decide what works best for all of us.
A Leadership Circle will help you build your capacity to lead activities at your congregation.
