Please join MVA's organizing team on September 9, 5-6:30 pm for the second iteration of our "Getting Back on Track" Delegate's workshop. Register below to receive the Zoom details one day before the event.
This workshop lays the groundwork for a Delegates Assembly on September 22, 6-8pm. We ask that delegates of member institution participate in one of these workshops in preparation for our fall assembly (see below to check if your organization has attended).
Our first run on July 27th had 22 participants. We discussed putting relational trust at the centre of our organizing and explored different areas where trust can help us build relational power. Together we made respective commitments to put this into practice in four areas of focus:
- Inside our institutions, by building a core team of leaders who will attend the MVA Delegates Assembly.
- With a neighbouring organization, by meeting with a nearby institution that is different from ours and inviting them to the Delegates Assembly.
- With other leaders at a virtual leadership institute or reconciliation training.
- As a member of MVA's sponsorship team.
Together we made a total of 26 commitments to building relational power. Join us for our next workshop to be part of the conversation and the work ahead.
