I’m setting up an in-person meeting with Ronen’s officer Caroline whom we’ve been working with in the past.
Purpose: to create a positive ongoing dialog with our district office (as per Scandiuzzi-Krebs’ recommendations) so that it’s easier to get them in our court when we need them.
I was able to reach someone right away by calling the number on this page:
By way of quick institutional reminder, I mentioned we were a 501c3 community space looking to make good on a $500K helper grant to buy a building. The guy on the phone said, “oh yeah, that’s important,” and seemed to be willing to book something this week if it was urgent.
I told him it wasn’t urgent (it’s really not) and so he took my phone number and said he’d call back with an appointment for probably/hopefully next week.
Aside: I think i like the term “Diplomat” more than I like “Ambassador”.
