Networking Events

From time to time SMI hosts informal events intended most of all to bring DFW area spiritual directors together.  These events usually feature a speaker, but the format is designed to be relaxed, collegial, and interactive. Our objective is to provide nourishment for the ministry by sharing information while building community.  Such gatherings also support the development of a personal referral network.  Check our website from time to time for news of an upcoming networking event!
