Talking Heads LIVE webinar

Dealing with Crises with Dr. Curt Bechler: Thursday, March 30, 12–1 p.m. EDT

“It’s not a matter of if, but when a crisis will happen.”

That’s the view of Dr. Curt Bechler, CEO of Venture International, an agency that specializes in crisis and conflict management—including for Anabaptist/Mennonite schools and nonprofits. Curt will be our guest presenter for the Talking Heads webinar at noon EDT on March 30, answering your questions about dealing with crises.

Read more about the webinar and Curt on our AC blog.

There is no cost, but registration is required.

Participants are asked to come with their questions, or to e-mail them to the moderator, John Longhurst, in advance of the event. They can also be shared anonymously with Bechler for his response. Send questions to John at [email protected]
