The community foundations of San Benito (https://givesanbenito.org/), Monterey (http://www.cfmco.org/) and Santa Cruz (http://www.cfscc.org/) counties are launching ComNetwork Monterey Bay. It's a fun peer learning and networking group for people using communications to promote social good.
ComNetwork Monterey Bay, a local chapter of The Communications Network (http://www.comnetwork.org/), is free and open to all nonprofit and foundation staff, as well as other communications professionals.
At the local kick-off at the Community Foundation for Monterey County (http://www.cfmco.org) (CFMC) we'll share our plans for the year. We'll get your feedback on how the group can benefit you, your interests and needs, along with suggestions on how to align ourselves with existing groups.
There'll also be a March 8 kick-off meetup in Santa Cruz County (https://www.meetup.com/Communications-Network-Local-Monterey-Bay/events/236909458/) and an offline recruiting effort in San Benito County.
Our initial plans are to host 3-5 meetups per year between the three counties.
For questions call CFMC Director of Communications Amanda Holder at[masked] ext. 123 or [masked]
