Join Our Annual Planning Process!

Our annual planning process is happening right now and a great way to learn more about the project, meet other lifeboat builders, and find ways to get more involved. Everyone is welcome! 

We’ll be walking through a series of exercises designed to help us learn from experience to identify the “20 that gets us 80.” Which ones sound interesting to you?
