Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia 

Please join us for our monthly NPO CONNECT meeting!  We will hear from Kathy Baske Young, Executive and Organizational Coach, have a little coffee and donuts and do a little networking!  We'd love to see you!

LET'S TALK ABOUT: Creating Your Best Life

A new year is a perfect time to assess what it is you want to attract more of in your life and put together a plan to get there.  Creating your best life has as much to do with what you remove from it, as what you add to it.  Most of us are unconscious about how our mental energy is used throughout the day and how it can drain us.

 This interactive workshop will help you identify those drains and you will leave with a plan to free up your energy.  Bring your journals and get ready to tackle the new year and the promises it holds for you.

Nonprofit staff and board members are welcome!  Space is limited.

COST: FREE!  Please note that if you register and are unable to make the networking event, you will need to let Foundation staff know immediately so that others may participate.  Registrants who do not show will automatically put on the wait list for the next networking meeting.
