If you're attending ACT for Alexandria's 6th annual Nonprofit Excellence Forum on Wednesday, October 13, I hope to see you at the ACTion Alexandria breakout session. We've pulled together a great panel to discuss the vision we have for ACTion Alexandria and how it can connect citizens and organizations to solve local problems relating to hunger, homelessness, health, education and literacy. Led by Shayna Englin, who has a decade of experience identifying and mobilizing supporters for non-profits and causes at Englin Consulting, the ACTion Alexandria panel also includes: Tony Castrilli, the Director of Communications for the City of Alexandria; Bonnie Baxley, Executive Director of Community Lodgings; and Chris Lewis, a community organizer who is now a Legislative Analyst at the FCC.

It's exciting to be part of such a great event. More than 300 people are expected to attend this year's forum--a record year. Jean Case, CEO of the Case Foundation, which is dedicated to expanding giving, promoting everyday philanthropy, deepening civic engagement and broadening the use of new technologies to make giving more informed, efficient and effective, will lead the morning’s Forum with an interactive conversation led by David B. Smith, the Executive Director of the National Conference on Citizenship.

The Nonprofit Excellence Forum is sponsored by Capital One.
