Legates soon will have a timely opportunity at Legatus Summit East 2021 to learn how to be salt and light in a world that has seen much decay and darkness amid the political unrest and Coronavirus lockdowns of 2020.

As COVID-19 recedes, the “normal” to which we return will differ from its pre-Corona counterpart. Changes will be good and bad, short-lived and lasting, predictable and unforeseen. Despite the unknowns, we can count on one inevitable truth: other crises lurk. Are we ready for the next one?
