October Leadership Series

Vanguard's theme for October is Duty. We invite you to consider what duty means to you in your daily life. How would you define civic duty? In your opinion, what is the difference between a moral duty and a legal duty? Where do you see people demonstrating duty in their lives? All are invited to attend our weekly Leadership Seminars with guest presenters.
