Community Conversations

Come join with other Provender community members for monthly peer-to-peer, Community Conversations. We meet on Zoom on the second Tuesday of the month at 12:00 – 1:00 pm Pacific Time. Hear from and share with your peer group as together we anticipate, as best we can, and share our knowledge, experience, and best practices for each topic. These educational gatherings are lively, stimulating, and a great way to connect with both new and familiar faces!

If your business would like to find out more about sponsorship of Community Conversations, please send an email or call us at 503-859-3600; we’d love to share about how you can support Provender Alliance educational programming.
