We gather West Marin Executive Directors for a quarterly EDs Breakfast, to learn about common issues and share common concerns. It is an exceptionally amiable gathering of people working on a shoestring in rural communities providing essential services… convinced we’re all in it together.
At our Summer 2015 breakfast, ED’s agreed on two new collaborative efforts:
• to work together with local media, so we can create better stories and better coverage of key issues in West Marin.
• to host an event for individual donors that would feature West Marin’s finest: our food, our farms and our fabulous region, rich in resources but challenged with real poverty, real needs. We’ll develop this more at our autumn breakfast.
Here’s a wonderful photo of some of West Marin’s dedicated Executive Directors.Back row: Skip Schwartz, WM Senior Services; Susan Tillett, Mesa Refuge; Mark Switzer, EAH and WM Commons; Marika Bergsund, Slide Ranch; Jamison Watts, MALT Middle row: Louise Franklin, Dance Palace; Samaria Jaffe, PRNSA; Steve Siegel, Coastal Health Alliance; Bonny White, Marin County Free Library Lower row: Wendy Friefeld, WM Community Services; Oren Slozberg, Commonweal; Kim Thompson, CLAM; Amanda Eichstaedt, KWMR; Jennifer Gately, Bolinas Museum.
