Trust and Belonging- Sparking a Community Revival

We’re back in-person! We’re excited to be holding our annual Convention back in-person in Grand Rapids! Against the backdrop of the Grand Rapids community, we will present sessions centered around the topics that will leave you feeling:

Optimistic · Empowered · Courageous · Open-Minded

Learn how to turn an opportunity into a strong community wealth building partnership; explore creative approaches to meeting the need for affordable housing; learn how to create trust and belonging in your community, and much more.

You’ll also have plenty of time to get out and experience some of Grand Rapids iconic sites and activities as you enjoy the camaraderie of your colleagues.

We’ve planned an extra special Convention that will fill you with great ideas and memories. Come join us!
