CNY Steering Committee Meeting (Open to All, with Formal Agenda) – January 24

(PLEASE NOTE – RSVP closes at 5 pm today because of venue constraints. Thank you.)

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As you know, we’ve scheduled a Steering Committee session concomitant with the Socratic Conversation on Your Habits and Your Life, at Columbia this Thursday. I hope to see you at one or both!

The Conversation will start at 4:00, and the Steering Committee at 5:30 RSVP required to receive address/location on the Columbia University campus (area of 120th St. and Broadway), if you are coming for the first time — please write to Ron Gross at

There’s much progress to report, including the addition of superb new team members, Yen’s wonderful work on the website, Antonia’s robust launch of our PR campaign, Phil’s inimitable “connecting”, Michele’s editorial wizardry, Herb’s exploration of resources for moderators, and more!

Please come prepared to report from your part of the forest, and to share your next priorities for February.

Ronald Gross
