Prepping for our re-launch party, rounding up speakers for Ignite & getting some beer to share with you, that's what we're up to. Our members have been doing some pretty cool stuff as well...
We've been getting our new space at 522 Lander ready for our Re-Launch Party next Thursday, March 24th. We've totally transformed the building from what it was like when we first checked it out: all the wallpaper removal, the painting & scraping and furniture assembly has come together and we want you to come down and see it. Grab your friends and come down to grab a beer with us next Thursday.
Have you ever checked out www.TED.com? It's no secret that we're fans- they have the most inspiring and interesting speeches on there. Well, Ignite Reno is like a local version of TED where people are given 5 minutes to present on a subject of their choosing. If you have something to say, then we want you to submit a speaking proposal on the IgniteReno site before March 25th! The event is on April 7th.
Starting this Friday at 4:30pm, we'll be hosting a weekly happy hour at the collective called Beer:30. It's BYOB, so bring down something to drink and let's crack open some good conversation. It's a great way to decompress from the week and start your weekend off right.
Reno Collective member Brian Williams is always moving around and getting things done! Brian's nonprofit organization, Think Kindness, just got finished flying doctors to San Igancio Mexico to donate medical services, and now they're launching right into organizing Reno high school students to donate & ship 100,000 shoes in 30 days- to Japan's tsunami victims. Way to go Think Kindness!
So that's a snapshot of the week at Reno Collective. We've got lots of other stories and cool stuff for our members to share- so make sure to come down and find out.
