SOAR Central 2022

Anchor City: Louisville

We are excited to announce that we will resume in-person delivery for our 2022 programs. Although the threat of the coronavirus pandemic continues to alter the traditional ways of doing business, we feel that we can comfortably and safely move forward. We, of course, will continue to comply with local guidelines and those of our partner organizations. Additionally, we will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as necessary.

One of the strengths of the SOAR program is having a cohort in the same area in which you live and work to help you build a stronger and more strategic network. Each region has an anchor city to help determine the best cohort for you to join. If you’re not sure which is the best region for you, email us and we will help guide you through.

Please read the instructions below before completing the registration at the bottom of the page. Registration deadline is Monday, March 14, 2022.
