Our distinctive beer will be from Hulls Brewing Company, based in New Haven.  Come speak with owner Chuck DelVecchio to learn the story of the brew's resurrection.  We’ll taste the company's first released brew in over 40 years.  Try other craft beers too.

The Identity Code - Larry Ackerman

Our featured inaugural speaker will be author and identity-based management expert Larry Ackerman.  Larry will lead us in a group discussion titled "How can you succeed, if you don't know who you are?" Together we will endeavor to find our own purpose and place in the world, utilizing Larry's book, The Identity Code: The 8 Essential Questions for Finding your Purpose and Place in the World as our framework.
