Join us for the 2021 regional VP Meet-ups: more info

Save the date of October 22-24, 2021!

Different meet-ups are taking shape with ideas on how to host the groups across the world. I am continually amazed and impressed by the intention, care, and desire to connect in meaningful and generative ways that contribute to doing and learning, reflection, and integration of our field work. This is one of the many of the reasons I love our community of practitioners so much. 


Here is an update on what we've got currently. Please reach out to the local organizers if you want to help an existing effort or reach out to to discuss starting your own.

East Coast hosted by Rachel Thompson and Brian Tarallo of NOVA Scribes 
They are on track to host a 1.5 day in person event. They plan on hosting up to 100 in-person with an open space concept. The focus will really be around connection and "rekindling". Registration will open soon.
Bay Area hosted by Trent Wakenight of The Grove Consultants, and Leslie Salmon-Zhu
This San Francisco Bay Area event is focused on linking together Bay Area practitioners. Offerings may include both in-person and virtual options, and a one-day event. There are openings for planning team members, event advisors, and presenters. Contact Leslie and Trent to join in!

The team is thinking virtual and entirely in Spanish and welcomes all Spanish speakers. They've sent out a survey to collect feedback for Latin VPs - share your perspectives, Latinos!
