Planning that Creates the Future: Making Change Vid-cast

Conversation - composite LOW RESHow could your annual planning create the future of your community? And how is that different from the planning most organizations already do?

Gayle Valeriote has been doing just that kind of planning with organizations across North America. In the February edition of the Making Change vid-cast, Gayle will be joined by the leaders of two of those organizations, to talk about what that planning looks like – and especially the results!

Join us for this free one-hour live event on Tuesday, February 10th at 4pm ET / 1pm PT. Like all our Making Change vid-casts, you are invited to be part of the conversation via Twitter (you’ll get details when you register). The event will be recorded, so even if you can’t be there for the actual live event, we’ll send you the link.
