Making Visionary Change Practical  
Help 4 NonProfits Community-Driven Institute



November 2008

Create the Future!

Hello from Lincoln, Nebraska!

If you missed our
last newsletter, you will find it here

In our August newsletter, we announced we were heading across the country and asked if you would like us to do a workshop in your community. From the 50 invitations we received, we chose 14 communities to visit across the US and Canada (in addition to those we were already planning on visiting), and the Community-Driven Tour 2008 was born! We are not even home yet, and we cannot wait to begin planning the tour for 2009!
