Growing the Kansas City Social Good Community

Background

On Thursday, Sep 21st 2014, Union Station hosted iKC The UnConference. The attendees developed the day's agenda with the afternoon track including a session addressing the question "How to synchronize and leverage all the Social Good in Kansas City?" The notes from that session are publicly available for review.

Erik Bergrud, of Park University, threw out a challenge that we not just talk about the issues, but that we actually work on it. Many of the attendees concurred and another attendee, Caroline Findlay, collected business cards to get us connected.  

The 1st planning meeting was held at the Kauffman Foundation Conference center on Wed, Aug 27th, 2014 as a direct outcome of the above efforts.

Next Meeting: TBD
