Other workshops may be offered during the year based upon interest and need. For more information about CMSM safeguarding education, please contact Tom Southard, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fifteenth Annual CMSM Safeguarding Workshop
October 28-30, 2019
Bethany Center, Lutz, Florida
As the Church continues to experience scrutiny of its safe environment programs, while struggling to address leadership accountability, CMSM maintains a commitment to offer in-depth dialogue to our members in the implementation of best practices in safeguarding. We will learn together how we can affirm what we are doing well, address the new challenges before us, and implement interventions to strengthen our responses and programs.
This year's workshop will offer three different tracks:
- Victim Assistance Coordinators
- Review Board leaders, members, and administrators
As always, we will bring together an experienced and knowledgeable team who will lead the discussion, as we explore the psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of safeguarding. Information has been emailed to CMSM members and safeguarding contacts provided to CMSM. The agenda and registration link is available to CMSM members and their teams by contacting Tom Southard, email@example.com.
