Staff Update: The View From SF

Just a note to say that the Foundation staff is on the ground in SF, and we’re looking forward to your arrival. Jackie, Julie C., Julie E., Joyce, James, and (the curiously non-J named) Rachel are all enjoying the sunny temps and beautiful views of the city. We had a great morning at the Headlands today and a terrific in-process dinner last night with Max & Julio and their talented team.

The weather has been warm so far, but might get a little chilly as the week goes on. (Be sure and bring a scarf or sweater, especially to the outdoor evening event at Southern Exposure.)  We’re trying to respond to as many emails as we can during our prep time, but if you don’t hear back right away – just know that we’re working hard somewhere and will get in touch as soon as possible.

One note about the schedule – we’ll have the most up to date version of the schedule printed and in your packets. If you’ve downloaded a pdf version via the site, just know that some details may have changed.

If just the past two days are any indication, this is going to be a fantastic Convening. Safe travels to everyone!

Also Attending: Foundation Board, Staff and Invited Guests

The foundation is pleased to welcome the following board members who will be joining us in San Francisco: Mark Allen, J.K. Brown, Rick Lowe, Jock Reynolds, Larry Rinder, foundation president, Joel Wachs, and Patricia Williams.

Also joining in the weekend’s activities are Helen Brunner and Jennifer Dowley, who helped guide the initiative in its earliest days and remain valued advisors.

Longtime Initiative consultants Ben Aase and Nancy Lee will lead multiple sessions throughout the convening and will be available during breakfast roundtables and in the afternoons for one-on-one discussions.

Foundation staff on site who are working to ensure a smooth and beneficial experience for all attendees include Rachel Bers, James Bewley, Julie Cummings and Jackie Farrell. Additional support is provided by Creative Capital’s Julie Evanoff  and San Francisco Convening Project Coordinator, Joyce Grimm.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.
