Strength & Service Series

Lutheran Services in America is taking full and active advantage of the virtual space to help our member organizations nationwide stay in the know on new and evolving practices and resources — curating a broad line up of topics and subject matter expertise. In June 2020, we launched our continuing virtual program, the Strength & Service Series. Strength & Service is an ongoing, interactive, virtual gathering of the best minds in our space, laser-focused on examining and tackling the unintended consequences and uncertainties in today’s climate — all with the goal of helping move your organization forward.

By drawing on the expertise of external influencers and our member organizations’ own vital lessons learned, we’re able to share tailored content and facilitate deeper connections to help meet your unique needs during this historic moment. The combination of our broad array of providers and central thought leaders in our space will make for truly symbiotic, interactive dialogue in a safe and trusting space — exactly when we all need it the most. We view these timely virtual convenings as critical to your organizations, to the many people you serve and to the future of Lutheran social ministry in America as a whole.

Aug. 17: By the (Hand)book — Staying Compliant in a Changing Environment

In 2020, many organizations had to quickly adapt to working remotely, and keep up with rapidly changing new health and safety requirements. There are over 50 new laws that took effect July 1 alone that impact 20 different states. How do you know if your handbook is compliant for federal, state and local laws? Join us for this Strength & Service Series webinar for best practices on updating your handbook, guidance for returning to the office, and how you can stay up to date with legislative changes.
