Memorial Day Weekend Conference 2009

Location Spokane, WA


Dear Colleagues,

As the conference quickly approaches, we look forward to seeing as many as you as possible! Join us for a weekend to re-connect with fellow colleagues, meet new people and hear our delightful Keynote speaker Moses Pulei guide us through the theme of "Shifting Ground, Solid Ground". Our conference theme will highlight some of the major trends/shifts during the last ten years and their implications as we head into the next decade of figuring out how to live the art and science of global citizenship and ‘service as a way of life'.

The Krista Foundation will cover Krista Colleague travel/room/board for three conferences. We will also cover spouse/fiancé room and board 3 times as well (we can sometimes help with travel).

Been to more than 3? (If you aren't sure, e-mail me!) We'd still LOVE you to come & help mentor, network and encourage others on their service journey! Clearwater Lodge kindly offers an ‘at cost' rate for returning Colleague families.
