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....
Mary Ellen, I notice that the URL for Trade Source in your profile should be http://tradesource.net rather than .us. I looked it up in google. It would be good to correct it so others can find you easily. In addition, would you be interested in registering Trade Source in our Transition directory, as Richard Logie has registered GETS Together. We are gradually raising the level of interest in barter and local currencies. If you are interested, here is the link -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new
Welcome Mary Ellen. Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to TRANSITION IN ACTION.
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/linktransitionarizonausa is your link to our new Transition page for your neighbors in Arizona. 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!
On the local scene, does Phoenix or Scottsdale (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 Scottsdale in our registry of organizations, companies, 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. I'll meet you at the door to launch and build the page.
