Each year the CIC chooses a topic to explore that is relevant to our community and our membership, from the perspective of leadership from a few different vantage points in the community.

This year’s topic is “Coming Through COVID – Better Together”. We will learn about the impact of the pandemic on our community’s ability to obtain and maintain access to the basics: food, shelter, healthcare (mental and physical), environment, and education.
