Being Relational: How to Create Quality Interactions and Lasting Change
This session is free but requires preregistration. In a crowded world full of conflict and competition--the world your spouse/partner faces daily--what is your approach to interacting with them? Are you relational or transactional? Your choice could make all the difference. This session will detail ways of being in relation with your spouse/partner and provide you with the tools you need to maximize well-being for yourself and for and your spouse/partner—one interaction at a time.

ICMA’s Partners’ Program offers conference partners the opportunity to volunteer on an annual service project. For more than 90 years, the United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM) has helped fight poverty in central Maryland with programs encouraging self-sufficiency. In conjunction with UWCM, this year’s project, which will be held in the convention center, will benefit youth in the Baltimore area. The partners will prepare about 50 literacy kits for underprivileged young students. When you volunteer with United Way, you join the fight, helping to change the odds for families facing poverty and improve their lives and the communities around them.
