Description

2018 VALLEY-WIDE MEN’S CONFERENCE

MEN 2 MEN: Resilient | United | Thriving

Men have many opportunities to bond and connect via sporting events and other fraternal organizations. Typically, these organizations are more inward looking. This conference will allow individuals and groups of individuals to come together to raise awareness of critical issues and to arrive at strategic personal and collective goals for advancement and enrichment. This event is an opportunity for men across the Valley of the Sun to have intergenerational, interdenominational, and meaningful critical conversations about pressing issues directly related to men’s lives.

  • Engaged dialogue facilitated by veteran leaders and subject experts
  • Opportunities to reach across boundaries that separate groups and individuals from one another
