What is an Athenian dialogue?

Dialogues are conversations that go beyond the usual knowledge recall and application process familiar to all municipal clerks in training seminars.  They are unique because they explore leadership principles and practice, drawing on insights contained in a book that all participants have read.... The Athenian Dialogue course requires that the book is read prior to participating in the course.

Cost is $125 for the Athenian Dialogue only on Sunday

Cost per night for food and lodging for Athenian only participants is $85
