MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am seeking info on how to become involved...
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have an interest in community Psychology, but in general am, like many others, looking for ways to improve life on the local level. At this point in our cultural evolution, individual independence looks increasingly important.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
As an enthusiastic and energetic individual with a wide variety of interests and experience, I could likely contribute to many areas, depending on need.

On the local scene, does Maryville (or some broader geographic area) have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Maryville in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. You interested?
