2. 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 would likely not meet until after that.

3. EO Talks
Following the platform used by the TED Talks global community, we are hosting our very own version featuring EO NASHVILLE MEMBERS ONLY! An off-site cocktail reception will be held nearby for EO Members and their spouses/significant others following the event. May 8 at Belmont University's Troutt Theater at 3pm. Register for this one-of-a-kind event today!
