(5pm Resume Swap, 7pm N4P Planning Meeting)
MLK Library’s Dream Lab
Digital Commons (Conference Room 5)
901 G Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20001
@ Metro Center or Gallery Place
Job Seekers, Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Organizers and Volunteers are all welcome to get out of their pajamas at home or take a break from their latte addiction at Starbucks to join us….just RSVP in advance if possible.
If you want to get involved in the political/civic grassroots or professional scene OR connect with others who do, then stop by and we will plug you into various opportunities you can work on immediately….and crowdsource new ones.
As you may know, the new “Digital Commons” (http://www.dclibrary.org/digitalcommons) will soon become home to a Dream Lab coworking community and is a great space for using free computers and wifi-enabled meeting rooms. So, feel free to come by with a charged laptop or smart phone…and even if you don’t!
At 5pm, we will do a Resume Swap and Career Discussion with anyone interested in improving their job search.
At 7pm, we will break for a Planning Meeting to discuss our ideas for Network For Progress (Generation Obama 2.0) and Progress Office now that Jim’s summer hiatus is over, including advocacy for the Affordable Care Act launch (10/1) and Virginia Gubernatorial Election (11/5) as well events such as meetups and fundraisers like our annual date auction in October! Movement-building categories include Community(Events, Outreach), Engagement (Communications, Technology), Development (Careers, Organizing, Leadership), Action (Campaign, Advocacy, Service) & Operations (finance, management).
There is plenty of space in the Digital Commons so these sessions will be separate from anyone co-working or co-organizing on their own.
At 9pm, anyone interested in continuing the coworking party is welcome to join us as we walk over to 1776, the amazing entrepreneurial/startup campaign and event space in McPherson Square, for the DC Night Owls Meetup – an after hours coworking community of self-starters turning big ideas into exciting projects! RSVP (space is limited): http://www.meetup.com/dcnightowls/events/135398802/
PARTNERS WANTED: Do you have an organization that could use a place to meet OR would want to collaborate with other groups OR that would be willing to sponsor us with resources ranging from laptops to snacks? Email Jim @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
