In DC I was part of a launch group - Ecolocity DC. Currently I am in the process of assuming a leadership role at Fourth Corner Exchange - a local currency group in Bellingham.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
my belief that the current economic system is not sustainable and needs to be replaced with community based alternatives based on love, trust and integrity.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
11 years spent in retail, investment banking and brokerage industry on Wall Street, small business experience, MBA, BBA in Economics, experience is facilitating group conversations, developing new programs, implementing small and large projects, teaching.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
It was great meeting you and talking with you at yesterday at the FOB conference. I'm eager to engage you in KulshanCLT's work and help find opportunities to link cooperative and permanently affordable housing in our community. Hoping we can talk more soon.
I am wondering what you think about something: I have the other group - Reforesting Whatcom and the World, which is not very active at present. This new group, Ecological Restoration formed at TGU, and I invited everyone from Reforesting Whatcom to join Ecological Restoration. I thought we would dissolve Reforesting Whatcom and re-establish the new group. What do you think? I could also ask all new members to join Reforesting Whatcom, and we could just change the name....hmm...any opinions or advice?
Renata, I enjoyed seeing you at Bloom yesterday. Especially your comments about your IRA. We all have them and are concerned about what to do with them. Also you mentioned a book from which you decided you were a connector. What's the title of that book? I expect we will be at Bloom again next Sunday. Bye now, Judith
