This is a forum for monthly book discussions, a calendar of meeting dates, book selections, suggestions, ideas, links, etc. And to publicize the Face to Face Seminars.



We are grounded on the principles of leadership education, reading and studying from the first person histories, classical novels, and scholarly works. Members are encouraged to mentor one another. By sharing the strengths we have, we build each other. Our common interest is Leadership Education and modeling this behavior for the children in our lives.
