About this event

UPDATE: Moving this brunch to one week later on March 17th due to high probability of rain on March 10th.

For our third gathering, we will come together for brunch in the outdoor seating area of Aldo's Harborside Restaurant at 11:30am. Our theme for March is community metrics. We will be discussing the metrics we each use to measure the health, impact, and progress of our communities.

Our intention is to create a practitioners' community here in Santa Cruz County for community professionals. As the saying goes, "the cobbler always wears the worst shoes." Put another way, humans who are building community benefit from a support community.

We (Karsten & Van) are open to this group evolving over time organically based on who shows up and what they are interested in doing as a community of practice. The caveat being many hands makes for light work. Anything beyond the monthly brunches would depend upon others stepping up to help because Karsten and Van need new shoes! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘Ÿ
