Blog Post: YNPN San Diego Robert Egger Event

Hi YNPN-ers~

Recently, YNPN San Diego found out that Robert Egger is coming to Southern California! Egger is truly one of the innovators and visionaries in the nonprofit sector and he loves YNPN!

One Voice for Change, about Robert Egger…

Robert Egger is the Founder and President of the DC Central Kitchen, where unemployed men and women learn marketable culinary skills while foods donated by restaurants, hotels and caterers are converted into balanced meals. He is also the Co-Convener of the first ever Nonprofit Congress and the founder of the V3 campaign, which is working to get the voice, value and votes of the nonprofit sector recognized in every election in America.

As some of you have seen by now, we have partnered with YNPNla and YNPN Inland Empire for an event with Egger on the evening of October 22nd in LA. While we know it is a haul for many of you, we hope that you might have the opportunity to attend this event as we know it will be fabulous.

We also very lucky to have Egger coming to San Diego. He is a native San Diegan and is speaking as the lunch plenary at SANDAN's annual conference. He has generously agreed to meet with any group of YNPN San Diego members that are available the morning of October 24. Wanting to take Egger up on this opportunity and connect his incredible work to our members, we are quickly working to pull together an event on October 24 at 10:00 a.m.

We understand that the timing may be awkward and unconventional from our regular events and hope that some of you will still be able to join us for this unique opportunity. We will determine a location for the event on October 15 once we have received all of the RSVPs. All members will receive an invitation in the coming week, so be on the look out and RSVP ASAP! The opportunity to meet with Egger will most likely be an informal, one-on-one conversation in an intimate setting like a coffee shop.

Thank you to Egger and his assistant, Erin Littlestar, for helping to make this possible and thank you to all the YNPN San Diego committee members helping with this incredible event! Check back with the YNPN San Diego blog and website for more details...
