NIF to Celebrate 25th Anniversary in 2006
At their meeting in Washington, D.C. in April 2005, National Issues Forums Institute (NIFI) Board members discussed how the network will mark the 25th anniversary of NIF in 2006. A very important part of this anniversary celebration will be what local/state/regional practitioners will be doing to recognize their participation in NIF and tell their story in the communities in which they operate. If you are planning an NIF celebration, you can help the network become aware of individual efforts which will occur next year by responding to this call for specifics of your celebration activities. Please respond by September 15, 2005, by sending your information to Patty Dineen at . Our goal is to publish an online calendar reflecting the scope of international efforts to mark 2006 as a milestone year in our mutual work to strengthen democracy.
