The 2018 RChain Governance Forum will help active members of the Cooperative's board, committees, and community learn to work together in a sustainable and productive way. The intent of this event is to foster improved group dynamics that allow the members and the organization to achieve their long-term goals together.

The Governance Forum will feature guest speakers like Seattle Circle, Mukara Meredith, and more. This event will give members the tools and opportunities to make crucial contributions in RChain through workshops, discussions, presentations and performances. Special thanks to Pyrofex for collaborating with us on the logistics and sessions for the conference.
