Community Volunteer Network Update: Saturday's Big Event, Leadership Transition & Holiday Volunteering

CVN Chair's Report

With the end of the year quickly approaching, there are a few very important things coming up for CVN.  First, we will hold a Stakeholders Meeting on Tuesday, November 16th.  We'd love to hear from everyone, whether you're brand new to the group and looking to find out more or you've been volunteering with us from the start.  We'll share data from 2010, get feedback, and come up with ideas to help CVN move forward in 2011.  Second, we are now accepting applications for our Leadership Team and Committees.  For more information on the open positions and to fill out an application, please visit our blog.  Finally, do not forget that CVN's biggest event of the year is coming up this Saturday!  We'll be helping Community Residences clean up five yards and meeting afterward at Front Page for a happy hour.  We hope to see you and your friends there!

Thank you for being a great group to volunteer with!
