Celebrate Diversity Miami | Naomi Ross' Fundraiser on CrowdRise

Celebrate Diversity Miami | Naomi Ross' Fundraiser on CrowdRise | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it
In summer 2014 I became inspired to begin the journey of following my personal mission statement: To creatively develop spaces that spark conversations on diversity, encourage collaboration, and inspire action to address social change. I was taking a course for my masters in Community & Social Change program, and happened to learn about an organization based on the west coast of Florida called Embracing Our Differences (EOD). The EOD mission is to promote diversity and inclusion throughout their community, and for over 10 years it has collaborated with schools in Sarasota County to produce a free large-scale, outdoor art exhibit thats been seen by 1.5 million visitors. So I thought, Why not bring a similar exhibit to greater Miami? and the idea for Celebrate Diversity Miami (CDM) was born!

For the past ten months CDM has evolved from a simple (albeit initially super ambitious) concept written on paper, into a more feasible project that it is well on its way to becoming a full-fledged reality in less than a month. On Saturday, April 11, 2015 the very first CDM Photo-voice Exhibit will premiere at Museum Park, thanks to a wonderful partnership with South Floridas annual civic engagement festival, PhilanthroFest. The exhibit features a vibrant selection of 60+ images submitted by local residents, schools, and community-based organizations from across Miami-Dade County. Afterwards, it will commence a countywide tour and travel to various neighborhood venues throughout the year, starting with Pinecrest Gardens on April 29th. In addition, thanks to another great partnership with MCCJ, it will be accompanied by ...

Email Intelligence - Does Your Board Possess it?

Email Intelligence - Does Your Board Possess it? | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it
Blog sponsored by Becker & Poliakoff 

In my last blog entry, I discussed the considerable downside to sending a resignation via email. Today, I am discussing the pros and cons of board members and managers using email for other purposes and how to craft a sound email policy for your association.

 

Board members, managers and association residents are no different from everyone else you know inasmuch as they are all heavily reliant upon electronic means to communicate. Phone conversations and, even more rarely, in-person conversations do still occur but not nearly as frequently as emails and text messages.

Whether you are a member of an association board of directors or are a manager assisting such a community, it is important to understand that (a) everything you put in writing can and will be used against you and (b) some topics and situations are not well suited to an email response.
