40 Below Civic Engagement Task Force news

Presenting the CNY Involvement Fair III

40 Below is pleased to announce its third annual CNY Involvement Fair III. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Pensabene's Casa Grande. Free and open to the public, the event will offer attendees an opportunity to visit booths from area nonprofit agencies, community groups, professional associations, and local businesses. This is an excellent occasion for agencies to connect with engaged, motivated individuals interested in contributing to the success of volunteer organizations.

For volunteers there is no need to register and no registration fee, and attendees need not be members of 40 Below. The goal of the event is connect willing volunteers, those 40 and over 40, with organizations in need of their service and to encourage membership within area professional societies. Visit 40belowsummit.com/boardfair for more details.

The November 2009 Fair marks a planned geographic rotation within the Syracuse area. The first CNY Fair was held at Drivers' Village for the northern part of the region, the second was held at LeMoyne College for those east, and this year's Fair targets the westside of the City and western suburbs. Traveling the event around the community will enable volunteers to have an opportunity to attend the Fair nearest their residence.
