If there's one word that defines the state of the nonprofit community as we move into 2010, it might well be "challenge".If there's one word that defines the state of the nonprofit community as we move into 2010, it might well be "challenge". On Wednesday, October 21, I'll be sitting down with theleaders of six of Richmond's nonprofit organizations to talk about a range of issues facing their organizations. The leaders at the table will be: * Reggie Gordon, Red Cross * Sherrie Brach, United Way * Lynne Washington, Peter Paul Development Center * Jeanine Harper, Greater Richmond SCAN * Robert Bolling, William Byrd Community House * Mary Lou Decoussaux, Neighborhood Resource Center The special Evening at Morton's discussion will be held at Morton's the Steakhouse in downtown Richmond, and while the dinner itself will be a closed event the conversation will take full advantage of technology -- it will be live blogged by Tony Scida of The Hodges Partnership, live tweeted by Trevor Dickerson of the popular Downtown Short Pump community news site, and audio recorded and made available after the event. My job is to keep the conversation lively and engaging -- not that I'll need to do much once the six participants get started! This is the third Evening at Morton's event of 2009 -- the first two focused on sports in Richmond and on arts and culture. The series is a co-production of The Hodges Partnership and Morton's the Steakhouse.
