Program and Membership Directors play an important role in telling the YMCA story and furthering YMCA philanthropic efforts but don't have many opportunities to focus on this at other Y gatherings. To make this happen, the Program & Membership Network has planned a special workshop and Y tour on Friday afternoon (Rounds 6 and 7). During Round 6 consider attending Mission in Action: A Community Partnership-the Underserved & College Students to hear the story behind Laurelwood. Although it is not required it is recommended if you are signing up for Impact Tour E: Serving Those in Need-Laurelwood Program Site that takes place during Round 7. A program-related tour was the suggestion of the 2018 Program and Membership Network and Tour E is designed specifically for this network in place of a Philanthropy Forum during that time.
