We are proud to announce that Lindy Black will serve as our retreat speaker! Lindy was born in Colorado and attended North Carolina State University where she met her husband, Vic, and The Navigators, and began volunteering with the Navigators at North Carolina State University. After receiving training, she and her husband led the Navigator program at Auburn University for 17 years. In 2000, Lindy moved into national influence in staff training and was invited to be the Associate Collegiate Director in 2003. In 2009, Lindy was invited to become the Associate Field Director and serve on the National Leadership
Team. Her areas of influence were personnel placement, leader development, and growing a culture with a developmental bias.
She served one year as Interim Field Director before moving into a role as the Associate U.S. Director in 2013. As co-leader of the U.S. Navigators, she has led the National Leadership Team, designed three levels of senior staff leader development, built the National Personnel Group function and team, influenced and mentored many key leaders, while adding leadership capacity and support to the U.S. Director. She stepped off the national team in January 2023 and has worked part-time since then. Her portfolio includes coaching and mentoring current and emerging leaders, special projects to support the national team, providing counsel to the U.S. Director, and speaking.

Lindy and Vic have been married 47 years and have three adult married children and currently live in Colorado. Their great joy is their twelve grandchildren, ranging from four to eighteen years old. Together they love to hike, eat popcorn and watch movies. Lindy loves to read and go out to eat with friends.

As the Women's Leadership Network, we value opportunities to cultivate spiritual practices for women to grow and thrive in their communities. Our 2024 theme is "Come to Me. Come as you are. Come and see." We will connect together. We will rest together. We will share our stories.
