Our friends at the Crisis Commons list are joining forces with NYC OEM, and are a great group of people to network to plug into.

> Hello New York crisismappers... The NYC Office of Emergency Management and NYC Citizen Corps Council are holding their 6th Disaster Volunteer Council on Tuesday May 1st, near City Hall. They've heard about this amazing crisismapping thing (heck, several of them are on this mailing list - *waves*) and they want us to get involved, and more importantly, to go drinking with them afterwards. Details of the CCC are here: http://www.nyc.go... Signup for the event is: http://www.eventb... I'm on the panel talking about crisismapping, but I'm just one person - this is our chance as a group to mingle with the guys we'd be working with on the ground if the next big nasty strikes our lovely city! Thank you, Sara.
