So what's next?
At our inaugural networking social on June 21, we announced that the Muttart Foundation
has generously granted mesh $5,000 to allow young nonprofit professionals from the national capital region to participate in the National Summit for the Charitable and Nonprofit Sector
that is taking place in Ottawa in November. We are working with a committee made up of representatives from the Muttart Foundation, CanadaHelps.org and Imagine Canada to develop application guidelines and a review process for an open call for submissions of interest for young nonprofit professionals who are interested in participating in this important national conversation about our sector. More information on this front will be made available in early July.
As part of the National Summit, mesh will be hosting a networking cocktail reception that will bring together young nonprofit leaders from across the country. This networking reception will be open to all, even if you are not attending the National Summit. Details on rsvp to come.

One of the areas of opportunity that was expressed in our initial survey earlier this year, was in the area of mentoring and mentorship opportunities. To that end, we are exploring the creation of a mentor/mentoring directory that would facilitate the matching of individuals who are willing and able to be mentors, with those who are looking to benefit from mentorship. We would like to enlist the support of five or six individuals who would like to help us explore what mentormatch
will look like. If you are interested, please contact Lee Rose
We've got the domain name, we're squatting on a twitter account and that's about it. We're looking for people who want to help get the mesh network's online presence up and running. Let us know if you're able to help out.
