YOUR POINT OF VIEW/YOUR EXPERIENCE HEARDWe want YOU to become a Community Leader today! Enjoy being part of the HBCU Connect community? Well, consider Community Leadership! Community Leaders — also known as Cornerstones — are the heart and soul of our thriving community. Cornerstones are people like you, people who have something to offer, love to chat and make friends in a specific area of interest. Our leaders host and visit a Café thread of their choice regularly. They read user questions and concerns about a particular topic. They post responses. But more importantly, our Cornerstones give our community a personality. If this sounds like an opportunity you'd like to learn more about, email email@example.com to get a fast application.

Hope all is well!I wanted to follow up with you with ideas for the politics / activism forum. I used the clubs function to set up a club called "Leaders for Change". This would allow us to post blogs & articles that go directly to members of the group.I'd like to start doing some of the following to get things off the ground:1. Continue publishing the Leaders Survival Guide series that I started (daily motivational message).2. Host regular interview sessions with people of interest. For example, I heard an interesting discussion on the news about how the NAACP is viewed by the younger generation. With your permission, I'd like to contact NAACP Youth & College Division and do a short interview with one of their representatives within the next week or two, then post a transcript on the forums.3. Once or twice a month, host a scheduled chat session or conference call for different interest groups... small business, hip hop generation etc.Still brainstorming ideas, so please bear with me! JC
That's super exciting and motivating!
I'm here to support you. NOT TECHNICAL though
Let me know if you need anything for the project, and I will be there for you, or find someone who can.
That kind of forum is one of the primary reasons for a site like this...
All the best to you,
