ThinkWORKS - April 21-23, 2021

Join VMAE | ThinkWORKS 2021 for “Harnessing the Power of the Pause,” a MasterMind event focused on
thoughtful foresight and planning. COVID paused in-person activities: how can you harness this time to
build a stronger, more relevant and innovative organization going forward? This is the question you’ll tackle
with your colleagues – and for your VMA – during ThinkWORKS.

2021 ThinkWORKS will be held virtually April 21-23 from 1:00-6:00 pm Eastern.
