Events and announcements

EA DC volunteer committees are set to meet!

The EA DC committees have formed and we plan to have our first committee meetings later this month. It's not too late to join -- with as little as 2 hours a week you can help grow our EA DC community, add some skills to your resume!  Here are the committees:  
  • Operations / leadership (setting strategic goals, establishing procedures, general leadership and community health)
  • Communications (social media channels, newsletter, publicizing events, website)
  • Outreach / welcome wagon (reaching out to new members of the community, and other groups / people we could collaborate with)
  • Events  (planning events, running them)

Do you know someone in our community that should be in the spotlight? Maybe you have just published a book, gotten a new job, or started a new charity or project? If you have an idea for a future spotlight please email us to let us know!
