Abstract
Is there a change you want to see in the world, your community, your job, or your life? Have you been waiting for “someone” “somewhere” to do “something”? Stop waiting! You are someone. You are somewhere. You can do something. Your change is the new future you imagine.  When you act to create your change, you become a Change Agent. You don’t need permission to become a change agent, but you do need to equip yourself for your change journey.
Join us for an in-person discussion with April Mills, Author of Everyone is a Change Agent, to learn about the Change Agent essentials, insights, and techniques you need for any rapid, joyful, successful change journey.
