CVNL did an excellent job organizing and facilitating a 3-session staff workshop series at MAGC.  The variety of activities and exercises kept everyone’s attention and the group was engaged and productive throughout the series.  The consensus we built about the values of MAGC and language to describe the place and our work are extremely valuable and will help us going forward.  It was an encouraging and inspiring project and CVNL made it a real success.”
