Stay the Course: Another Great Annual Summit

This year's Summit -- held on October 2nd -- was an another amazing success! Our thanks to all who participated. In Dr. Greene's morning keynote, we were reminded of the perils of using power to solve problems and of the imperative to stay the course toward collaboration and teaching our kids the skills that define the better side of human nature. The afternoon Parents' Panel keynote was both touching and inspiring. In the afternoon Educators session, participants heard from leaders from school systems in Ontario, Indiana, Wisconsin, and New York City and how they've implemented the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model in their settings. And the feedback that we've received on the breakout sessions suggest that they were informative, helpful, and energizing. If you missed it, we'll have streaming video posted on our website soon.  We can't wait to do it again...mark your calendars and join us next year on November 2, 2018 in Portland, Maine!
