    Wake County Leaders Meeting

    When: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 07:30 PM
    Where: North Raleigh Community Church Downtown in Raleigh, NC

    Join us on June 11 to kick off the Wake County Sponsors House Meeting Campaign. This important campaign will lead to the creation of our initial grassroots agenda for change.

    From June to October leaders across the county will engage 4,000 Wake residents to identify potential leaders and to surface the top pressures facing families and communities. 

    During our leaders meeting we will discuss the campaign and pledge participation. Newer leaders will be given the option to attend training over the summer to learn how to conduct house meetings in their communities. 

    We recommend that every institution sends a team of at least 5 members to participate.
