In This Meetup

This month’s meetup will feature our new members! We are so excited to welcome our 22 new members to the community. This is a great way to meet our newest members, make connections, and network for the upcoming RFP.

The 2016 Round 2 RFP has been released by the Hive Fund at The Chicago Community Trust. The application is live and proposals are due April 8th. Take a look at the details here and come out to the meetup to connect with your peers and Fund staff to get inspired by the work being done, and still to be done in our Moonshots. Make sure to sign up for a Consultation with Network staff where you’ll have a 20 minute conversation to discuss and strategically shape proposal ideas for success in the 2016 Round 2 Hive Fund RFP.

Connections: Lead conversations about Hive-related topics

Arrive at 9AM and claim your space! During the meetup we’ll provide chart paper and markers for up-to six conversation leaders. Pick any topic of discussion and invite people to join you. If you know what you want to talk about in advance, invite anyone you’d like to the meetup to join you! Just have them RSVP!

#hivebuzz: Share program or project updates

During the meetup anyone can have 60 seconds to announce an event, program or opportunity available to others and then 10-15 minutes to lead small discussion/breakout groups to share more details and information about your update with curious attendees. If you are interested, you’ll need to let us know in advance.  Please send a single slide representing your update to Kenyatta Forbes by end of the day, on the Tuesday before the meetup.

Moonshots Working Groups: lead discussion and project groups

Moonshot discussion groups: You or a representative can volunteer to lead a discussion about a project idea that connects to a Moonshot. Either how it serves to demonstrate challenges related to the area, or how it demonstrates a solution to those challenges. Discussion groups allow you to invite input from other Hivers.

Moonshot project groups: in this area of activity, you would present the project and pieces of work or tasks that others can help with. This might be drafting, designing, communicating, reviewing, etc. The goal would be to help others contribute to the work. In this format you can facilitate an engaging share-out of your project while also getting something done! Ideally, this is work that could be brought back to meetups monthly.

Community Manager Office Hours

Have questions about membership, how to effectively engage in the Hive, RFP’s, or expectations of members? Come to our Monthly meetup and stay after for Community Manager Office Hours from 12:00PM -12:30PM.  You’ll have a chance to meet the Hive staff and have an opportunity to ask questions.
