Community Resilience Initiative is incredibly grateful to all who attended, helped created, and supported our 2019 Beyond Paper Tigers Conference! We were honored to be joined by approximately 450 people from 23 different states and 2 Canadian provinces. Each session felt charged with energy due to the passion and dedication from each of our attendees. CRI was thrilled by the participation, whether during the pre-conference social, or in the creation of the 7-Sentence Stories!
And ultimately, Teri Barila co-founder and CEO of CRI, would like to personally thank you all.
"THANK YOU for being with us to share the "heart" of our fourth conference! I truly hope our message of "Building Resilience across the Life Span" struck you as foundational to all we are attempting to achieve in our communities.
I was particularly moved by the stories from day 2 Keynote participants and the many stories shared with me during breaks and networking times. I am so grateful to be involved in some small way with all of you as we find ways to support this critical work in every community.
