The 2016 Peace Corps Connect National Conference is coming up, and we're calling on our members to help with final preparations.
There are lots of ways to get engaged! If you are part a particular country or affiliate group, you can organize a reunion or get-together and post it as a Member Led Event so it appears on our website, then email firstname.lastname@example.org to post it on the NPCA's new Community Calendar. Volunteers who help run the event receive special discounts and access. Finally, if you're really feeling generous, you can offer lodging to a visiting RPCV looking for a place to stay. It's a great way to meet fellow RPCVs, share some stories and make someone's trip to DC for Peace Corps Connect all that more memorable. You can also offer a spot via the Horizon mobile app and control who can see it, visit www.horizonapp.co/rpcv-washington to get started.
Be sure to register if you haven't already and bookmark the official schedule page for the latest event info. If you work for a company that would be interested in sponsoring the event, you can check out their sponsorship information here. To really make an impact, set aside September 21 and participate in the special 55th Anniversary Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill.
There's going to be a lot going on in September. We can't wait to see you!
