four four nine is our journal. It’s a record of what we’ve learned, the community we’re building, and the opportunities we have to grow at The Assembly. It is our digital field notes, a collection of takeaways from panels and workshops. It’s a place to celebrate our dynamic members. We invite you to read four four nine wherever you are in order to connect with the community.
