What the Community is Saying

Let your success become the next story we share

Monthly Virtual Meeting

Every month we organize a virtual meeting for our members.

We start off with quick introductions to cover three key things:

  • What are you working on
  • What you could use support with
  • How you can support others

Then, we propose three key topics affecting us all and spend a few minutes discussing them together.

We conclude the meeting by sharing upcoming events and opportunities to the group.

Semi-Monthly Newsletter

Twice a month we send out an exclusive newsletter to our members.

This newsletter includes:

  • Announcements from our members
  • Announcements from government officials
  • Announcements from community leaders
  • Upcoming Events

Each newsletter includes a link to a form for you to submit an announcement to run in the next newsletter.
