Visionary & Advocacy Council Retreat
at ECCC’s Annual Conference

January 27-29, 2020 | Claggett Center (Maryland)


This year our Visionary and Advocacy Council Gathering will be held in conjunction with ECCC’s flagship event, the Annual Conference. Our vision is to create a gathering where Council members, Center Directors and staff meet and have opportunities to be in community together, to exchange ideas, and to celebrate the ECCC community’s successes.

Visionary Advocacy Council members will have designated time to meet with one another, to attend workshops and participate in Wellness Day, which includes a trip to Washington DC and the National Cathedral.

Our aim is to deepen people’s engagement with ECCC by providing different opportunities to become involved in our ministry and to bring understanding of the organization’s inter-dependency with the Visionary and Advocacy Council and one another.
