Join the Conversation

We know that each of the Dodge Board and Communications Workshops is jammed packed with new ideas and tools to improve your organization. We also know that ideas which seem easy while sitting in the classroom can feel more complicated when you actually attempt to implement them in your specific circumstances. Help is at your finger tips. We have created an online conversation tool that will allow you to connect with the faculty for two weeks following each workshop and the entire Dodge learning community for as long as you want to keep the conversation going. Click on the Join Us! link below to register first (required). Then, post your questions and get feedback from our workshop experts and your colleagues working in the trenches. Use this tool often and together we will create a learning community.

You will only be able to join the conversation if you are logged in to the Dodge website (it’s free and easy to sign up, and we will never share your personal information).
