SUBJECT: Seeking new co-organizers

Hi Changemakers,

Are you passionate about promoting the use of technology for good? Then join me as a co-organizer at GROUP NAME.

WHAT IS NETSQUARED LOCAL?
NetSquared Local groups offer a space for anyone interested in technology and social impact to connect. They provide members an opportunity to convene locally to share ideas, learn from one another, and collaborate on projects for real world impact.

WHO ARE THE ORGANIZERS?
Local organizers are volunteers who are passionate about promoting the use of technology for good. They are highly diverse in age, background, experience and knowledge.

WHAT IS A NETSQUARED LOCAL ORGANIZER?
NetSquared Local organizers are passionate community-minded volunteers who believe that change is accelerated when social benefit organizations leverage the tools of technology and the social web. They understand the power of bringing people together face-to-face and are especially interested in connecting social benefit and technology innovators.

Does that sound like you? Join me as a NetSquared Local organizer.
