  • Maintaining the operations of CCR North America and enabling us to assist the growth of CCR Europe and CCR Asia Pacific.

We greatly appreciate your continuing support as a member of the global CCR community. Together, we will cultivate our expansive vision step by step, by tending to one another, tending to our minds, and tending to our world.
