Save the Date – Second Transition Whatcom Assembly

March 27th, 2011, 1PM – 4PM
The Assembly is a quarterly meeting, and the opportunity for group leaders
or representatives to inspire and inform others of your Workgroup’s progress
towards learning, sharing and helping our community develop the skills it
can use to transition towards a more aware, less energy-intensive way of
living. The Assembly is open to all, but we will ask all group leaders or
reps to tell us about what they’ve been exploring over the last three
months. For more details review the minutes from the first Assembly meeting
located on the TW Ning site (under TWOG Schedule Discussion, 12/11/10)
and/or email Warren Miller at warren@wavefrontmarketing.com for more
information on the structure of our transition model.

Location to be announced.
