The RISE Annual Meeting is the organization’s largest event of the year — and this year the group celebrates 30 years in business, per an industry-wide email disseminated by Megan Provost, RISE president.
After discussions with its members, its committees, and its Governing Board regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, RISE has decided to hold its first-ever Virtual RISE Annual Meeting.
This year's virtual meeting will include:
• Aug. 25: Opening general session — Tune in to hear Megan Provost’s first RISE presidential address; a political analysis on the 2020 presidential election; the latest information on RISE’s 2021-2026 strategic plan, and much more.
• Aug. 25-26: Committee meetings — All of the RISE committee members are invited to discuss the details of its next strategic plan and its implementation.
• August-September: Opportunities to engage — Even though RISE won’t be meeting in person, there will be many opportunities to engage virtually, ranging from a virtual happy hour and a virtual golf tournament to virtual volunteering supporting Hands On Atlanta. More details forthcoming.
• September: Educational webinar series — Learn more about the work of RISE and some of its advocacy topics in-depth through a series of short webinars.
