Annual Membership Meeting and Holiday Gathering

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Members and non-members alike are invited to join us for a festive evening to hear directly from staff about the work to ensure an equitable, just, and healthy Appalachia. We are looking forward to joining in fellowship and drawing inspiration from how we’re all rooted in a vision of a healthy and resilient region.

This year, we're planning in-person events at each of our offices (Boone, N.C., Charlottesville, Va., and Norton, Va.), featuring snacks, beverages, and a chance to engage with staff one-on-one, as well as a virtual component for those who can't join in person. Starting at 6:00 p.m., we'll hear remarks from our executive director and board chair, followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions about our work.

Help us celebrate another year of progress and RSVP now!
