Meet-Up and Catch-Up
StEPs-CT Alumni Circles
What has your organization been doing since the last StEPs-CT program you attended? Do you miss getting together with other folks and organizations to talk about the issues and concerns your organization is facing?
The CLHO and Connecticut Humanities misses YOU, and are excited to launch our new StEPs-CT Alumni Circles in Fall 2017! We’re starting off by hosting three gatherings where StEPs-CT organizations, faculty, and friends can come together to chat and talk about what’s on your mind. The agenda will change from meeting to meeting based on your needs and desires, but will always involve plenty of opportunities for conversations, socializing, and yummy treats.
Our second gathering will take place on Monday, September 25, from 3:30-6:30 pm at the American Clock & Watch Museum. We’ll break the afternoon up into 3 parts:
3:30-4:15 - What has your organization been up to lately? What are your successes, and what are your stumbling blocks? What topics would you like future StEPs-CT Alumni Circles to tackle? This will be an open, facilitated conversation where folks can share--or just listen.
4:15-5:00 - A discussion about Membership: which organizations do it, why do they do it, and what works. Also, how is a membership program different than fundraising and annual giving?
5:00-5:30 - Scott and Laurie will share updates on what’s happening at CLHO and Connecticut Humanities--including a 3rd offering of StEPs-CT set to begin in early 2018! Help provide thoughts and feedback on the new StEPs-CT--and learn how your organization can participate too!
5:30-6:30 - Potluck Social--Bring an appetizer or dessert and we’ll bring the beverages!
