Nonprofit and community events and news
is another busy month of nonprofit and other community events! Based on
your feedback I have simplified this newsletter's layout so that it's
easier to read on phones and tablets.
Before sharing organization updates and event information, let me
introduce a book I worked on last year --- I only wrote one chapter but
the women who edited this put two years of their lives into it. Chapters
are written by 10 experts in sustainability and education. If you are
teaching or working in the area of sustainability or community
development, it is definitely worth reading. Thanks to everyone who
helped me with my part on Nonprofit NGO response to the 3.11 disasters!
I am working on another of the Tomodachi leadership
development programs. This time i will be doing a training for and then
bringing 12 Japanese university students to visit nonprofits in
Washington, D.C. really looking forward to it.
I am shopping around a sustainable development training program to
universities for 2017. Want to know more? Or if you need assistance
with strategic planning or corporate community engagement programs? Drop
me a line and let's talk!
Hope to see you at one of the events below!
