Welcome Bernadette. Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to TRANSITION IN ACTION.
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/linktransitionmarylandusa is your link to our new Transition page for Maryland. Feel free to join in the activities. Use the COMMENT WALL to say Hello to the others. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something you're interested in. Ask a question. Start a discussion. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's Resume. Have fun!
One more thing, on the local scene, does Columbia 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 adding a link to Columbia in our registry of organizations, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
