EPIPers Kick-off the New Year at Casanova Lounge

EPIPers from all over the Bay Area gathered at Casanova Lounge in San Francisco's Mission District for a happy hour on January 27, 2011 to kick-off the new year. Approximately 30 EPIP members and non-members congregated for drinks and some delicious mediterranean food (thank you Truly Mediterranean!) to meet other philanthropy and development professionals in the Bay Area and learn about the 2011 EPIP program calendar.

EPIP Steering Committee Co-Chairs Dion Ward and Pauline White Meussen welcomed the crowd and highlighted some of the exciting upcoming events for the year. Most notably, they encouraged members and non-members alike to participate in the 2011 EPIP National Conference taking place April 7-9, 2011 in Philadelphia. Dion and Pauline also underscored the benefits of EPIP membership, including networking, professional development and opportunities for leadership within the chapter.

Revelers got to know each other by playing "Human Bingo," a game where each person gathers signatures on a modified bingo board in which each square has a different statement about personal experiences. Players connected over common interests and backgrounds throughout the night. Human Bingo culminated in a raffle of completed bingo boards where three very lucky attendants each won the book Working Across Generations by Frances Kunreuther, Helen Kim and Robby Rodriguez, as well as some very handy EPIP notebooks and pens.

The New Year celebration launched all the great programs to come for EPIP in 2011. Stay tuned to the EPIP blog for the next great event!
