Community Forum Night

file_001-1At CLI, we’re passionate about helping others, not just through our organization, but in any way we can. One way we are doing that is through a new community program we started in November.

CLI is partnering with the Grant Seeker’s Resource Center of FCPL to present a monthly event on the first Tuesday of every month in the Community Room of the C. Burr Artz Library in downtown Frederick. The event is free — dinner is provided.

Each month is hosted by a different organization, though all participating organizations will be present at each event. Attendees will be able to network with other businesses, organizations and members of the community. You’ll be able to learn about what each organization does while finding out about connections, volunteer opportunities, and how you can help in the community. Take a look at this flyer for more information about the next event.

Arrive anytime between 5 and 6 p.m. for networking and dinner, followed by a presentation from 6 to about 6:30, and more networking until 7 p.m.
