Calling All Leaders!

Save the date for Saturday, March 14th, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., for a Leadership Workshop led by Howard Adams, Ph.D.

Many aspects of congregational life call for leadership. Leading projects, proposing ideas and seeing them through, chairing committees. Almost all of the work we do in congregational life requires the efforts of many people to be successful and working together goes better when we can communicate well, define clear goals, track our progress, and hold ourselves and each other accountable for the work we commit to. Some people may be “born leaders,” but for the rest of us, leadership involves a set of skills that we can learn and continue to improve throughout our lives.

Come join Reverend Justine and longtime member Dr. Howard Adams for a day of learning about and practicing the skills involved in leadership.

Who should attend? All current leaders – board members, committee chairs, committee members, and everyone who would like to be more effective as a leader at CVUU and elsewhere in your lives.

RSVP by emailing Rev. Justine at and include any dietary restrictions/requirements (light lunch will be served). Childcare available upon request by March 1st.
