To learn more about the National Center for Global Engagement, click here or their blue header above.  They are actually putting into action the very ideas and beliefs that I (and this blog!) stand for.  I have been fortunate enough to volunteer with NC4GE for a few months and they have some really amazing trailblazers on board – people you will be reading about and watching on the news and the Biography channel and will want to post pictures of that time you met them at DRINKSHOP ;). Plus, I’ll be there! If you’re my friend, and you’re in Atlanta, get a ticket! I’ll only be in Atlanta for a day or two before heading off to Nashville – so this is like the guaranteed way that we’ll be able to catch up over awesome drinks and of course – a good cause. See you there!
