11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET – RIDING THE WAVES OF LEADERSHIP THROUGH COVID-19
Whether you’re an Executive Director or in the early stages of your career, there’s no doubt that this last year has tested you, both personally and professionally. Working toward sustainable, equitable and inclusive communities through a pandemic has likely required you to hone many new skills, let go of a lot of control, and become responsive to nearly constant change.
Intentional leadership has never been more valuable. Suzanne Gibson, our fabulous Community Leadership Program facilitator, will take you through exercises about leadership styles, change management, and power.
This 90-minute session will also provide you with guided time to contextualize what you’re experiencing along your personal leadership journey, as well as a chance to hear from peers in the CCEDNet membership about the challenges and possibilities of leadership through COVID-19.
12:30 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. ET – MUSICAL GUEST LAUREN EDDY

2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET – FRONT PORCH VISITS: BUILDING THE MEMBER NEIGHBOURHOOD
The more we know our neighbours, the better we can collaborate to make great places to live. A member neighbourhood is no different! It’s time to celebrate making it through this year, to fortify ourselves for the road ahead, and to pool our collective expertise as we look toward what’s next.
What is most alive for you and your community right now? How does this fit into the direction you want our Network to take?
Join us on the porch, and get to know your member neighbours as we map out our neighbourhood assets and notice any gaps. Bring your experience to share!
By knowing and listening to one another more deeply, we can practically shape our efforts toward a future that supports us all. With open doors and open windows, let’s become good neighbours.
