Campy Hour Networking Event- Seattle

Join us for Campy Hour at Georgetown Brewing, Seattle. This is an opportunity for some low-key networking, or even just to hang out with fellow summer camp pros. We're headed to Georgetown Brewing Company, home of Manny's Pale Ale and Lucille IPA. Both the date and location of this Campy Hour were tactfully selected: ACA's standards course takes place that same day, 3.5 miles away at the Museum of Flight. Smart!

Have you ever been in a circle asking the question and waiting for an answer? Or wondering what question to ask now? Or having written out thirty questions the night before, only to realize later you never used those questions? Visual facilitation is a tool I've been using in facilitation over  the past twenty years and it’s time to unleash its potential. If you are somewhat artsy...great! If you're not very artistic, great? We’ve all got what it takes to make visual facilitation happen.
