A small group of professional trainers and consultants have been working to find ways to make a difference in the lives of individuals impacted by the economic situation facing many of us.

The concept is called Community Conversations Project. We have designed a two day event for the communities. This event was titled "Bridge to the Future: Communities in Transition" and was held in Lake Forest Park May 11 & 12.
