Request for Workshop Proposals – LEYM 2020 Annual Meeting

The Program Committee of LEYM is requesting proposals from Friends for workshop presentations at our 2020 Annual Meeting, to be held July 30August 2 at Bluffton University, in Bluffton, Ohio. The theme of this year’s meeting is Letting Go: Listening with Whole Hearts and Open Minds. If at all possible, we hope proposals can be submitted before Wednesday, February 5. However, the deadline for submission is Saturday, February 15th. We cannot guarantee that proposals submitted after that date will be considered. 

We expect to provide about ten workshops on Friday and Saturday afternoons, including one by our keynote speaker on Saturday. Each workshop will be an hour and 45 minutes, and should have some relationship to the theme. 

Please submit the following for each workshop proposal:

  • 1. Name and monthly meeting of leader(s)
  • 2. Committee or organization, if applicable
  • 3. Title of your workshop
  • 4. One or two paragraphs describing the content of the workshop, including its relationship to the theme of the annual meeting.

All proposals should be sent to Greg Mott at mott@findlay.edu, preferably by February 5, but no later than February 15th. We look forward to receiving proposals from individuals or committees and hope that Friends will have thoughtful and interesting ideas to share with all of us.

Thomas Taylor (Ann Arbor), Clerk; Claire Cohen (Pittsburgh); Aran Reinhart (Broadmead); Susan Hartman (Ann Arbor); Steve Morehouse (Ann Arbor); Greg Mott (Broadmead)
