2021 ACDLSM Convocation / CLM Staff/Leadership Network Gathering
By David Teel
Registration is live and open for the 2021 ACDLSM Convocation at the link below.
Only conference directors pay the $15 convocation fee (district directors do not) and may also choose to pay 2021 dues through this registration process. You may also download a PDF of our agenda and the 2021 dues letter at the registration site. When prompted for a payment type, conference directors may choose credit card or check.
NOTE: If you are a district director (or a friend of LSM), select “Check” and click “Make Payment” to complete registration (you will NOT need to mail a check).
We look forward to seeing all of you “virtually” on Saturday, February 6.*
Registration is open for the first of two CLM Staff/Leadership Network gatherings in 2021 (click on the link below).
There is no charge for this first* CLM gathering of 2021. We will discuss support and adaption of CLM processes during pandemic this Friday, February 5, the day before the ACDLSM gathering, from 12-1:30 p.m. CST. Join us as we share how distance learning has impacted our CLMs and district/conference LSM leaders.
We will use a significant portion of our time to share information, encouragement, and support for our CLM colleagues across the connection. We will also offer insights and innovative practices from LSM leaders for training and support for CLMs during this challenging, socially distanced era of ministry.
NOTE: It’s not too late if you would like to share a brief update on the challenges/opportunities impacting CLM processes in your district/conference with the entire Zoom gathering. Please contact David Teel at [email protected] for help creating a short audio/video report on what’s happening in your ministry zone.
*A larger version of this gathering will meet later in the year with new education committee recommended best practices for CLM training, support, supervision, and accountability for annual conferences that approve online forms of CLM learning.
