Spring 2021 Consultation

When
Date: 
Wednesday, May 26, 2021 to Thursday, June 10, 2021

After careful thought, the Executive Committee has decided to cancel the Spring 2021 consultation. We believe that this decision will best serve the needs of the CCR, our members and partners.

The wellbeing of our members, partners and participants is of utmost importance. With this in mind, the Executive Committee’s intention in cancelling the spring consultation is to support CCR members and to make meaningful connections in a more sustainable way.

In the coming days and weeks, we will update you with a new plan of activities for the upcoming months. More than anything—we wish to thank all of you for your continued engagement with the CCR and for your generous support of our shared efforts to create change. Many of you have invested time, energy and thought in planning, organizing and participating in our various events, including the Spring Consultation – for which we are very grateful. We are committed to ensuring that those efforts don’t go to waste.
