It's still cold in NYC

So as I mentioned in my last field report, recently introduced our graphic design program to our nonprofit members. If you're interested, here's a link to the volunteer graphic design gallery. I've said it before but I'll say it again: if you (or friends!) have experience as a web designer or graphic designer, sign up to help one of our nonprofits! It's a great way to gain meaningful design experience (plus it looks pretty snazzy on a resume).

To celebrate Black History month, featured our member the The Ralph J. Bunche Repository in our February newsletter (created by Alice =D ). One of our volunteers had recently designed a wonderful site for the organization and it was great timing; allowing us to feature an organization which honors the first African American to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

In addition to our volunteer programs, we organized an accounting Webinar (with help from the organization Easy Office) for our members this month entitled "How to prove your worth through your financial statements". Although has not offered accounting services to our members before, the subject of the Webinar was obviously very relevant for nonprofits considering the current economic climate.

And in other news, I wasn't lying when I wrote the title of this blog post. The walk from the subway to the office remains chilly and I can not wait to put away my puffy coat with the fur-trimmed hood for good! Who's with me?
