EmmettAn Idea Not To Be Repeated

By: Emmett Carson In: 2009 Annual Conference| Philanthropy

4 May 2009

The Annual Conference is for the benefit of members and not vendors. By putting breakfast in Resource Central rather than in or near the opening plenary led to confusion and people missing a wonderful opening performance of the Youth Ensemble of Atlanta. We can find other ways to get people to visit Resource Central when they can actually visit with vendors rather than juggle breakfast.

Emmett Carson is president of The Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
