Join the First Call of 2010
- The January Conference Call is right around the corner!
This Wednesday, January 13th at 8:00pm Eastern/5:00pm Pacific will be the next Monthly National Organizers’ Conference Call. The call is a great opportunity to add more tools to your organizing repertoire and receive critical updates and information on the newest ideas for Fair Trade Towns USA campaigns.
Call in Number: 605-475-6333
Participant Code: 884663#
Please make every effort to join the call. New organizers, interested parties, and established Fair Trade Towns are all encouraged to join in. We will be sharing our experiences from Fair Trade Month, which was one of the most successful FT Months to date, as well as discuss ways to maintain momentum through the holiday season. We will also be hearing from a guest speaker from a national sustainability network on ways that we may be able to network and help each others’ campaigns.
Join us on Wednesday to learn about these great opportunities and to connect with all of our fellow organizers!
