New Programming this Spring 

The ASI Online: Interactive Presentation Series

Join us this spring for a series of five sessions within the theme of Building Resilient Communities.  Beginning with an overview of resilience each session will build on this theme as it relates to resilience at the individual, community and societal levels.

Each session will be 90 minutes in length combining presentation and interaction. The goal of the interactive presentations is to inspire you to take learning forward into post session activities and actions!
