The official launching of the next generation of ESNT leadership took place in Denver, CO on April 11-12, 2015 when the new ESNT Board of Directors met face-to-face for the first time. The two-day meeting allowed us to get acquainted with one another and examine in depth the tasks before us.
We opened our time together by reflecting on what the Narrative Tradition means to each of us; reaffirming our commitment to the vision, mission and values of ESNT, and dedicating ourselves to decision and policy making that reflect these foundational principles and promote sustainability of ESNT’s work for many years to come.
We have a deep appreciation for the history of the Narrative Tradition and deep love for those who have brought the Narrative Tradition to where it is today. We also recognize that, as with any new organization, there are and will be some growing pains moving into the future. Each of us brings different skills and talents to the collective whole, and we honor and welcome the contributions that all of us can make. It is our firm commitment to seek the highest and best good of the Narrative Tradition as we work to provide a framework of sustainability for our core curriculum of teachings and studies, the incredible legacy we have inherited. For each of us, it is a profound privilege to serve the Narrative Tradition community in this way.
