First NOII - Ottawa Member's Meeting!

Folks interested in being core and network members are invited to join us for our first meeting after the orientation. The meeting will take place at the McNabb Community Centre (180 Percy St.) in Meeting Room C – 1st Floor from 6pm to 8:30pm.

If you're joining us, we'd like everyone (if its within your capacity) to bring food to share as the meeting will also be a potluck. We'll eat and share throughout the meeting.

If you're unsure about your membership commitment, come anyway. If you couldn't make the Orientation meeting last week, come as well! We like to see new faces.

Join us on Facebook at our Event page and our Group page!

Accommodation Notes: The space is wheelchair accessible. We will also provide childminding (playground in the back of the centre). There is also a kitchen space that can be used for food. For other accommodation needs, please email us at noiiottawa [at] gmail in advance of the meeting.
