Topic for Today: We’re convening on July 18 for an ideas summit, Peace Corps Connect to the Future, to ask some big questions about the Peace Corps community in a changed world. We’re also bringing together members of the Peace Corps community in a series of town halls leading up to the event. Learn more in today's discussion.
With the launch of the Global Reentry program and many similar support initiatives by affiliate groups, and increasing numbers of virtual events, NPCA would like to open up a channel for increased communication and coordination of our efforts. To this end, we are holding a standing weekly Affiliate Group "Leaders Lunch" meetings on Wednesdays at 2 PM Eastern Time.
[It's difficult, if not impossible, to find a time that works well for groups across six time zones, so we will evaluate with you whether this time slot needs to be changed after the first couple of meetings.]
These discussions are fairly informal as they are meant to share ideas and opportunities for increased coordination between groups. Anne Baker and Dan Baker (no relation) will facilitate the discussion and other NPCA staff will also be invited to attend each week. We hope that at least one member of each group's leadership team will be able to join the discussion each week.
Please contact Anne and/or Dan to suggest additional or future discussion topics.
We look forward to connecting with you!
(A zoom link will be sent to you after you register for the meeting.)
