Halftime Huddles are gatherings of Provisional and Full Connection Elders who are under appointment for the purpose of encouragement and team building. The conversations will be helpful and forward focused. The huddles will last several hours. You are encouraged to plan to join one another for informal lunches afterward. If you plan to attend the Blue Lake Halftime Huddle and would like to eat lunch there, you will pay for that in your registration. Sign up for your preferred Halftime Huddle now.
