Dear CBNO Partner,
Nominations are officially open for the 2017 Bryan Bell Metropolitan Leadership Forum. The brief description of the program and the nomination form are attached. Also, for the first time ever, we have an online option for submitting nominations; the link is https://goo.gl/forms/iUmTPbmLRa1T6DzA3 Deadline for nominations is July 24, but please start thinking now about who among your friends, colleagues, contacts and community would be a good addition to the Forum. And please help us get the word out by posting the information to Facebook, Nextdoor and so forth.
Also, we are going to do a mid-June initial release of the People’s Budget for 2017. We are already right at 300 players for the Big Easy Budget Game this year, and would love to add another 100 this week and next prior to compiling the initial data. The link for the Budget Game is www.bigeasybudgetgame.com; please be sure to play yourself and also share this with your colleagues and constituencies. It’s your chance to make sure your issues and priorities are included in the budget we present to the budget staff and the media.
Keith G.C. Twitchell, President
Committee for a Better New Orleans
