The Network is in the Works

Since the great success of the first convening of a Global Great Lakes Network in Detroit this past June, work to build a network has continued. Six working committees are meeting to develop a potential work plan for the Network to pursue to strengthen the work and impact of local efforts across the Great Lakes region.

The committees are focusing on:

1. Peer-to-Peer Learning

2. Conference and Events

3. Joint Fundraising

4. Joint Technology, Assets, and Resources

5. Joint Advocacy and Programs

6. Media, Social Media, and Communications

Many of the participants from the first convening are attending the Fifth Annual National Immigration Integration Conference in Miami this November 17-19. The Global Great Lakes Network will be gathering for some networking and to socialize on Monday, November 18th at 5:00-6:30 p.m. at The Gallery bar at the Miami Downtown Hilton.

We are starting to plan for a Second Convening of the Global Great Lakes Network in the Spring of 2014. Interested partners, participants, and sponsors should contact us at
