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 announcing our plan to hold standing weekly Affiliate Group "Leaders Lunch" meetings on Wednesdays at 2 PM Eastern Time, beginning on May 27.
[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 will be 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.
The first meeting will begin with a discussion about how best to coordinate Global Reentry programs with affiliate groups, including sharing of calendars and mentorship matching efforts for evacuated RPCVs. Please contact Anne and/or Dan to suggest additional or future discussion topics.
We look forward to connecting with you!
