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....
Brian, Glad to have you in the Verde Resilient Communities group. We're going to be cranking up the action as the weather cools down. Hope to engage you in something you feel is worthwhile. It will be fun to talk through Sustainable Phoenix.
Hi Brian, I am the group admin for the azhomegrownsolutions group on the ning site but a rather inept one. I am trying to figure out how to approve you to become a member of this group. However, I would like to invite you to join www.azhomegrownsolutions.org and connect with 800+ people interested in sustainability in Phx, Nayeema
Welcome Brian. Great to see your interest in Transition!
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/linktransitionarizonausa is your link to the new Transition page for 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!
One more thing, on the local scene, does Phoenix 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 Phoenix in our registry of organizations, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
