Global Builders Leadership Gathering: April 20-21, 2018


If you’re a Global Builders’ team leader or interested in learning what it takes to become one, we invite you to join our 2018 leadership gathering in Americus, Georgia. You will join Fuller Center leaders from around the country and Nicaragua to learn more about who we are, sharpen leadership skills, learn from experienced trip leaders, share travel stories, and find out what it takes to lead a Global Builders trip.
This event is being held alongside our annual Fuller Center Covenant Partner Conference which will give you the opportunity to meet those who are heading up our work around the U.S. It will also immediately follow our 2018 Millard Fuller Legacy Build, which you can learn more about below.

Registration Fee:

The standard registration fee for the conference is $95 per person. However, if you’re scheduled to lead a Global Builders trip in 2018 or 2019, we’ll waive the fee! It’s our little way of saying thanks, and because we want your trip to be as amazing as possible.

There is a free lodging option described below as well as hotel options. The cost for participating in the Legacy Build is $225 if you sign up by the end of February; $250 in March and April. (The Legacy Build fee and the hotel costs cannot be waived.)

Volunteers at the 2017 Legacy Build

Millard Fuller Legacy Build

This is the first time that the Legacy Build and annual conference have been held together, giving you a unique opportunity to build, network, and learn over the course of a week. The Legacy Build is an annual event held in a different location around the world each year that began in 2009 after the passing of our founder Millard Fuller. With volunteers from around the country that include highly skilled house leaders, it promises to be an exciting week of getting a lot of work done in a short period of time. Learn more on the Legacy Build web page or register using the button below.

You do not need to participate in the Legacy Build to attend the conference.
