The Leadership Forum at Cairn is a monthly meeting of business and organization leaders who seek to lead biblically and as faithful stewards wherever they are. These meetings will feature special guest lectures and provide an opportunity for networking, encouraging one another, and learning together about leadership from a biblical perspective.
The Leadership Forum at Cairn is built upon the long-running Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) meetings hosted at the University since the 1990’s. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather and grow together as Christian business leaders.
The $17 admission fee includes a catered lunch or breakfast (check the schedule for time)
Tables will be available for you to provide promotional materials or newsletters for your business or organization. Please also bring your business cards. All attendees will receive the attendee contact list.
