-- COMMUNITY NEWS --

GCSC '07
It was great to see so many of you in Alexandria last week. Our speakers were tops, and they said the same about our audience. In six outings now, it was by far the most synergistic and vibrant learning atmosphere ever! To all who participated, please share your program ideas for next year and plan to join us again in '08. Dates and location will be announced here ASAP.

USA Services Partner Meeting
This program in Washington on June 7th will feature preliminary results of a government-wide assessment of citizen service activities. For further details, contact Karen.Trebon@gsa.gov.

Citizen Service Expectations
Two new studies on this topic have recently been posted by GSA at http://www.usaservices.gov/research.htm.
