    Thanks to everyone for participating and making this a great event! I learned a lot and I think there was much we can apply to the coalition and our group.

    Can anybody give me a ride down from Vernon? I won't need a ride back. Laura and I are going to Baltimore starting that day, and if I can get a ride down she'll drive down to Hamden to meet me when the workshop's over and we can just head south from there.

    Hi there! If folks can consider bring a snack or dessert item with them to the workshop to share with everyone, that would be much appreciated. Looking forward to the workshop!

    If folks can please RSVP by noon on Thursday, 2/7/2013, that would be a great help. We need to provide a head count to Mr. Edwords so he can prepare the appropriate number of workshop materials for us. Thanks!

      Also covered will be powerful ways to use online social media. For many volunteer groups this has the advantage of no cost and less formality. And many activists are already involved in social media and simply need to focus their efforts more organizationally. Included in this topic area are ideas on the following: Developing an improved Web presence
      Spreading your message through Facebook
      Making effective use of blogs and online forums
      Producing viral videos The secret behind all of this is "message clarification" in advance of media campaigns. It's the core of this no-nonsense, succeed-every-time seminar that has been given to groups all over the country as UnitedCoR builds and promotes local coalitions from coast to coast. Practical handouts will be provided, but come prepared to take notes.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
