One and a half years ago, Rob Malone, The Arc of Prince Georges County Executive Director asked his neighboring chapters (Northern Virginia, Montgomery County MD, The District Columbia) if they might benefit from holding a get-to-know you meeting. With a resounding yes, this quartet continues to hold two-hour, quarterly lunch meetings and developed relationships, shared ideas, found solutions to shared problems and imagined the possibilities. Their outcomes are plentiful, including a joint purchase of television advertisements and winning a travel training grant from the Metro Washington Council of Governments. What are you doing to connect with local chapters that share your borders or interests? Take advantage of The Arc’s powerful network around you.
