Silver Lake Conference Center Email Update to the staff and Board of the Southern New England Conference, UCC   

The SLCC year-round staff has a goal to be more intentional about communicating our programs and activities with the wider SNE staff and Board. To do this, we aim to send a monthly email to the entire staff and Board with highlights of what we’ve been working on and upcoming events.

From the Silver Lake Board of Directors


"In January, the Silver Lake Conference Center Board of Directors met for a planning retreat. During the virtual session, we engaged in exercises to help focus our discussion around evolving mission and vision statements for Silver Lake. These activities will help inform our project of developing a strategic plan for Silver Lake."
