The 2022 ESU Annual Conference in Charleston, South Carolina,
has come and gone, but there's still more work to be done!

Please join us for our upcoming Zoom webinar on
Tuesday, December 13 at 4:00pm - 5:30pm EST.

For those who were unable to attend the conference or those who have more questions on our initiative of "Setting the Stage for Growth," the Reverend Renee LiaBraaten has generously agreed to present once again her findings and thoughts on the ESU as we embark on a new era of collaboration to ensure a healthier, stronger, English-Speaking Union. 

In addition, Executive Director Karen Karpowich will share updates on the development of a new website and our vision to empower Branch leadership in updating their own website pages with events and important news.  

There will be time set aside towards the end of the webinar for questions, so come curious!
