CONVENORS:

An optional additional role for advisors and for others. You’ll generally help build awareness for the project. When opportunities arise, you’ll reach out to people from your networks to tell them about We Can’t Wait, and how you’re involved. You’ll encourage them to talk further about it with you—and with their family, friends, and colleagues—as they consider joining you in giving a lot now, and pledging at one of our three levels.
