Education ProgramsChapter Programs
Jim is a regular speaker at monthly chapter meetings on topics such as Life Transition and Authentic Relationships. These are typically 45-minute presentations, followed by Q&A. Each presentation is tailored to the specific demographics of the chapter (e.g., members only, members and spouses, WPOers invited), after discussions with the Chapter Education Chair and Day Chair for the event.

Chapter Integration and "Bonding" Events
Often, chapter officers lament that little intimacy exists within their chapter outside of the forum experience. They also struggle to integrate newer members and spouses into the flow of the chapter experience. To address these intimacy and integration issues, Jim and the OnCourse team create customized half-day and full-day chapter experiences, and multi-day chapter retreats, that engage members and spouses in forum-like discussions and challenging, team-building adventures. These events are a blend of teaching, small-group discussions and sharing, physical challenges, and uproarious socializing. The experiences range from emotionally gut-wrenching to hilariously gut-busting.
