Fall coffee meet and greet

After a hiatus over the summer break, we would like to reconvene the twig with our first fall coffee get-together:

When: Tuesday, November 1, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Where: Kensington Second Cup

Why: To reconnect with other Calgary Twig members, update each other on our current projects and activities, and plan future twig activities (social or professional).

Also why: The co-chairs of the Calgary Twig are looking for volunteers to take on the coordination of the twig and help plan activities or seminars.

We need you!

Although the twig was launched with much enthusiasm in 2015 and we have done our best to keep it going over the past year and a half, with a few socials, coffee meetings and a couple of seminars, the twig co-chairs are now regrettably no longer able to devote much time to twig matters and are looking for assistance to keep it going (due to personal and professional commitments).

What are you looking for?

Beyond being a good opportunity to reconnect with other local EC members (and to discuss the upcoming certification exams with other editors), we hope the coffee meeting will give us an opportunity to discuss what our twig members would like to get out of the twig – your needs and expectations.

Please RSVP (kind of)

Should you intend to join us at Second Cup on the 1st, please email us to let us know by no later than October 30. We hope to have a strong turnout, which will indicate an interest twig members in maintaining the twig as a resource and hub for Calgary-area editors.

Wishing you all a happy fall, and looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks,

Christine & Chrissie
