The Three Forms of Capital: Why Human and Social Capital are the Building Blocks for Healthy, Stable Societies

Cleveland Institute of Art
Oct 09, 2014 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM | Cleveland Institute of Art - George Gund Building | Community
Whether it be the design and production of a durable guide to services for the region’s transitional population, a neighborhood identity campaign, the development of empathetic and observational skills in medical residents through portraiture, or a state-of-the-art design for a safe and functional public restroom, Cleveland Institute of Art students and faculty are out in the community building better futures. CIA invites you and I encourage you to attend a civic forum featuring Stephen Vetter, Cleveland Institute of Art’s Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, entitled “Why Human and Social Capital are the Building Blocks for Healthy, Stable Societies.”

This civic forum, co-sponsored by CIA and the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development at Case Western Reserve University, will explore these successful community partnerships and the many impactful ways emerging artists and designers can partner with residents and neighborhood groups to address social problems and encourage community dialogue.

The guest speaker, Stephen Vetter, is currently president of Partners of the Americas with over 35 years of experience in development and grassroots community leadership. Stephen’s visit at CIA is part of Community Works, a multilayered, year-long effort that explores the nature of art and social engagement. I encourage you to come and here from Stephen and the esteemed panelists, noted below.

I hope you will join in engaging in this critical dialogue on the important intersection of art and social change on Thursday, October 9th from 3:30 to 6:00 pm in our George Gund Building at 11141 East Boulevard, Cleveland OH 44106. RSVP to Barbara Chira, Academic Director, by Friday, September 26th at bchira@cia.edu or 216.421.7364.

After the forum, CIA invites you to stay for cocktails and hors d-oeuvres and to enjoy the Faculty Exhibition in CIA’s Reinberger Galleries.

Engaging the Next Generation of Nonprofit Leaders: A Community Conversation

Lakeland Community College Nonprofit and Public Service Center
Oct 09, 2014 - Oct 09, 2014 4:00 - 5:30 PM Networking reception will follow program. | Mooreland Mansion, Lakeland Community College, 7700 Clocktower Drive, Kirtland, Ohio 44094 | Community, Build Your Business
Although many nonprofit organizations recognize the need for new energy and talent to help revitalize their boards and committees, they are uncertain as to where to find -- and how to recruit -- members of the next generation. Emerging leaders, for their part, often encounter barriers as they seek to make inroads into traditional organizational structures and gain access to positions of responsibility.

This free event, moderated by Lakeland Community College President Morris Beverage and former Congressman Dennis Eckart, will explore these and other issues with a group of four young professionals who have successfully navigated their way into meaningful leadership roles in the nonprofit community. Whether you are a nonprofit professional, a baby-boomer trustee hoping to ensure the future vitality of your organization's board, or a member of the "next generation" who is eager to play a role in the community, you are sure to find this conversation valuable and important! Please join us for a lively discussion and networking reception at Lakeland's Mooreland Mansion. There is no fee, but registration is required.

Moderators: Dr. Morris W. Beverage, Jr. - President, Lakeland Community College, Dennis E. Eckart - Principal, North Shore Associates
Panelists: Carrie Dotson - Executive Director, Lifeline, Inc.; Adam Sanden - CFO, Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center; Alyson Scott - President, Fredon; Erik L. Walter - Partner, Dworken & Bernstein Co., L.P.A.
