what would a successful participant come IN with? I.e. what level of competence in the essential network leadership skills already achieved?

How many participants total are you hoping to include?
Will you consider more than one application/leader from the same organization?
Andrew, we spoke briefly through email, but can you explain more about the need to be associated with a 501c3. As an EDO we are a 501c6 but also have become a centerpiece for our regions food systems network. How do you suggest someone like myself apply given our alternative nonprofit status?
Hi, could you talk more about the "team" application and what you would look for in two applicants applying from the same org?
This sounds more like a retreat for individuals who are network leaders, but what about teams? Does each individual apply seperate?
I'm hearing you're hoping to make this a shared learning model?
Will some of your prework be focused on prepping folks for sharing lessons learned?
How far into the food system process do we need to be? We are at the very beginnings of forming a food system in Utah. Would this be beneficial for me being that we do not have a functioning system?
What about individual network leaders, such as farmers or business owners who practice food justice through their work?
Even though they are not non-profit?
thank you all!
Thanks all for joining!

Awesome work Wallace!
