Your registration includes all activities, 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches, a Friday evening reception at the Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry at Champlain College, and Saturday night dinner at Rock Point Center. 

Our schedule includes a diverse range of creative appreciative approaches that engage our intellects, emotions, and curiosity.

A few highlights of the agenda so far:

  • Embodying the Appreciative using breathing and movement activities with Miriam Novotny, Director of Mosaic Learning Center
  • Applying AI to work in communities with Fran Stoddard, Vermont Story Lab, host of Vermont's Across the Fence:  America's longest running TV show!
  • Building trust in diversity: Tanya Cruz Teller and Marlene Ogawa of South Africa, co-authors, among others, of the incredibly inspiring 2019 book, "Thriving Women, Thriving World."
  • And back by popular demand, poems by our own Ada Jo Mann!

And you! As a participant, you might offer:

  • A Tad Talk: A 5-minute mini-talk on a subject dear to your heart (Once you've registered, you'll receive an invitation to submit your Tad Talk proposal);
  • An Open Space session: Host a discussion about a topic related to PACE about which you'd like to spend more time engaging with colleagues;
  • Your book! Bring your books and publications to sell and share.
