Save the Date: Regional Network Conferences Scheduled for May!

Your Agency Services Team has high hopes of attracting more Good Shepherd Food Bank partners to our Network Conference 2014 by offering regional meetings instead of one large gathering in Augusta. Conferences will be held:

Monday, May 5, in Auburn
Monday, May 12, in Bangor/Brewer
Monday, May 19, in Caribou

We will have the same program at each conference, and you may choose which site is best for you to get to.
We are planning for a 5-6 hour day. Local community programs will be invited for a "resources fair," Good Shepherd Food Bank staff will be on hand to talk about current and future programs, and we will ask for your participation on panels and as part of discussion groups. Doing something innovative in your pantry or soup kitchen program?  We'd love for you to share!  Experiencing some growing pains as demand for your services keeps going up and up? Feel like you're out there all alone?  This is an opportunity to network with other programs doing similar work -- to compare successes and challenges and to swap stories and ideas!  
We are working to set the event sites as well as the day's schedule, and we'll open registration as soon as we have those details ready! Scholarships will be available.  Stay tuned!
