What’s the connection? 

Learn from this year's special guest

snowLuther K. Snow, national facilitator, author, and social inventor 

Keynote: "ASSETS: How Engagement Really Works"
Seminar: "Asset Skills and Strategies"

Luther is the creator of Asset Mapping, the inperson method for positive group collaboration that has gone “viral” and spread to over 2.5 million users across the
US, Canada, and places overseas.

Author of three best-selling books on community engagement and voluntary group dynamics, Luther's experience ranges from rural to urban, from health and social services to community economic development, from leadership development to the management of organizational coalitions, and from faith-based work to philanthropy.

Luther has a BA from Harvard and an MBA from the University of Chicago. A rural resident himself, Luther is one of the pioneers of the Positive Rural Development movement.
