Executive Directors of West Marin non-profits

By March 31, 2015No Comments

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.
