Meet-and-Greet Advisory Board Candidates

7.26.14-Meet-and-Greet_IMG_7809On Saturday, July 26, 2014 CommunityGrows Advisory Board invited candidates they’ve been vetting to a Meet-and Greet event in Koshland Garden. It was a great day getting to know fantastic candidates who came to us through recommendations and through Linked-In Board Connect. Barbara Wenger, Executive Director and Kelly ErnstFriedman, Director of Programs joined three of our current BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens), Kyle Patterson, Monique Adams and Rodrique Irby to support our current Advisory Board members for this event. Five of our current Advisory Board members, Shairah Simley, Will Newsom, Jaromy Schmidt, Barb Fujimoto, and Jennie Carpenter, had a chance to share CommunityGrows, and get to know the candidates. Next steps are to continue interviewing and discuss candidates at our August Advisory Board meeting. There are lots of exciting activities and events coming up in this 20th year of CommunityGrows and we are looking forward to growing and enhancing the Advisory Board to accomplish our mission. Great first steps and exciting possibilities!
