Three Things for EO Nashville This Week

1. Join an EO Committee! 
This is a great way to get more involved with EO. Click here to see all of the committees for which we are recruiting members. Most options are not demanding, and they give you the opportunity to expand your EO experience and get to know other members. The new board takes over May 1, so most committees will not meet until after that.

2. EO Talks
Come to listen, learn, heckle or hound, but don’t miss this opportunity to hear from this select group of EO Nashville members. Drinks to follow at Chago’s where you can engage, challenge, or learn more about each speaker’s unique brand of crazy.
