Come to our first Fall 2010 potluck dinner talk by NorCal's past
treasurers, Melvia Wong and Kendall Mau!
Also members, please vote in our SouthBay Alternate election!
*TOPIC: "Microfinance in Developing Countries: Sharing Experiences & the
Peace Corps Connection"*
Kendall will speak about the Finance component of Microfinance. Melvia
will talk about the Marketing part and a little about ACDI/VOCA, the NGO
that they work with and how RPCVs can contact them. Do we have any water
engineers/ environmental specialists out here? Other similar
international organizations are abound. Peace Corps experience in addition
to expertise is very attractive to NGOs looking for candidates!
All RPCVs curious about this type of consulting and traveling abroad for 2-3
weeks or 1-3 months, are warmly welcomed to join us for an evening of good
conversation and cheer.
We're potluck-styled for dinner. Kendall is cooking up salmon & Mel offers
Kirin's Crispy Chicken...Everyone else, unless you have some specialty to
share, please bring:
A-H: Salads & Sides
I-Q: Main dishes
S-Z: Desserts & Drinks
