Welcome Reb3ecca. Great to see your interest in Transition!
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/linktransitionnorthdakotausa is your link to Transition North Dakota, a brand new group. Feel free to create some dust. I know you can do it because I used to live in Fargo-Moorhead. :) 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, does Bismarck have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be enlightening to all our members if you would consider adding a link to Bismarck in our registry of organizations supporting Transition and Sustainability -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new. Let me know if you have questions about the details.
