Hello Stackers!

I just wanted to check in as we approach the leadership training
session that some of the TC and community will be attending in Ann
Arbor, Michigan together [0].

First thing: fostering as much inclusion as possible.

Because of the limited amount of space, I was wondering if anyone had
any ideas of how we might be able to share the experience with anyone
not-in-the-room who is interested.

As a first step, I've set up an etherpad for each of the two days of
training [1] where attendees can jot notes if they'd like to share,
and where anyone not in the room can ask questions, potentially, about
what's happening.

I also expect a few attendees, at least, might find the training

2. Free webinars (which contain a lot of the elements of blocks of the


3. Books related to the ZingTrain leadership philosophy:


If anyone has any other suggestions or questions, please respond with
input (and feel free to write me privately if you'd prefer).

Second thing: logistics for attendees

I'm going to have to do some housekeeping/organizational things with
the 19 people attending, and that will just be via private email (and
using the existing etherpad [0]). Keep an eye out for that soon!

Thanks - and I'm really looking forward to sharing this experience
with the whole community!
