As we've announced previously, the DC Villages Collaborative (DCVC), a joint project among all thirteen Villages in Washington, DC, is now a reality! The Collaboration Council, the body that will oversee DCVC's long-range mission, met for the first time in July to kick things off. Our own Morgan Gopnik, previous NNV President and current NNV Vice-President, was elected as Chair of the new Council. Other officers include David Mackoff from East Rock Creek Village as Vice-Chair, Tama Duffy-Day from Capitol Hill Village as Treasurer, and Emma Brownstein from Greater Brookland Intergenerational Village as Secretary. We will be sure to keep you up to date as the Collaborative develops and begins to offer new citywide programming and events!
