Hey, thanks for your continued support!

It's been a busy few weeks for Generocity

May kicked off with Philly Tech Week, including the inaugural Introduced by Technical.ly conference with its jam-packed Impact track. PTW also launched Year Two of our Tech in the Commons bootcamp series for nonprofit leaders, which featured four learning nights and two project nights and finally wrapped up this past Tuesday. 

We also hosted INTER/VIEW 2018 presented by Public Health Management Corporation, our third annual jobs and engagement fair. And then last week, staffers were OOO for a few days as we trekked to Monroe, NY, for Technically Media's annual retreat

So yeah, we've been running around a bit. But we haven't forgotten about our very favorite readers: YOU, members. Let us know what you need from us, what you want, what you love and what you hate. We're listening. 

👋,

Julie Zeglen, Editor

Some leftovers

Leftover perks, that is. We have some free tickets to the Franklin Institute. Take the kids, take your sweetie, go learn something cool. There's a new exhibit on the history of video games, which sounds sweet.

Member Jackie Lewis also graciously donated one (1) branded hat from her passion project, World Gratitude Map; see it in action here

Hit reply if you're interested in either!

At TM's retreat, 20 of us did team-building exercises and set goals for the coming year. BUT DID YOU KNOW: Generocity.org will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2019. 

A good chunk of the retreat was devoted to figuring out what that means: How do we celebrate it? How do we approach the next 10 years? Who are we, anyway? 😱

So, if you have any thoughts about what 10 years of Generocity means, please do send them along. Feedback from our most loyal readers — some of whom have been here from the very beginning! — is wanted, and extra valuable.
