This year\, we will work with the theme "Conscious Decisions in Chaotic Times" and examine the chaos that finds itself in higher education. We will attempt to understand the depth of the issues within higher education\, with a willingness to go beyond the quick fixes and generate ideas for how to 'hold steady\,' have meaningful conversations\, and build tolerance for tension and complexity.

The program doesn't teach answers to specific problems. Rather\, it provides a social "laboratory" for exploring the dynamics of power\, leadership\, authority\, change and transformation as they actually arise and unfold during the conference. Participants are exposed to a method of ‘reflection-in-action’ that utilizes both the intellect and emotions and can reveal profound truths.

Hunger may be as close as your neighbor or your coworker in the next cubical. Bare cupboards and empty stomachs look just like yours and mine behind closed doors. Food banks across the country help some of the 42 million men\, women and children who struggle with putting food on the table. The reasons range from illness to job loss and a general change in circumstances. Circumstances that can happen to anyone of us. For parents struggling to make ends meet\, the ability to look their children in their eyes over a meal instead of into hungry eyes is a difference made by supporting food banks. Food banks fill the gap for those living on a meager budget. Many food banks offer educational opportunities that help people change their situation and begin anew. Often\, those who have benefited from the programs return to volunteer and contribute to the very food bank that staved off hunger to do the same for others. HOW TO OBSERVE Help a neighbor\, a friend\, coworker or a child by making a donation or volunteering at your local food bank. Food banks take nonperishable food items and cash donations every day. Check their needs list for the fresh items they are seeking. Use #NationalFoodBankDay to give your local food bank a shout out and to share on social media. HISTORYSt. Mary’s Food Bank founded National Food Bank Day to recognize the outstanding contributions of food banks around the country and to commemorate the establishment of St. Mary’s Food Bank by its founder John ven Hengel in 1967. John van Hengel came up with the idea of grocery rescue and food banking and the idea spread throughout the country making St. Mary’s Food Bank the very first in the world! In 2017\, St. Mary’s celebrates its 50th anniversary! They distribute 250\,000 meals on a daily basis through the efforts of dedicated staff\, partner agencies\, and volunteers.Their mission is to alleviate hunger through the gathering and distribution of food while encouraging self-sufficiency\, collaboration\, advocacy\, and education. The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Food Bank Day to be observed annually on the first Friday of September beginning in 2017.

Here’s what you can do. Looking to get involved in the second annual Energy Efficiency Day on October 5th? Last year’s first-ever national event was a big success\, and we welcome your help in expanding the reach of this year’s event. Energy Efficiency Day is a collaborative effort of regional and national organizations that promote energy efficiency. More than 175 government agencies\, companies\, utilities\, cities\, and other organizations were official supporters in 2016. This year we are amplifying our efforts with a website\, a Facebook account\, more official declarations\, and a challenge to save energy in homes and businesses. Here are four ways you and your organization can spread the word about the benefits of energy efficiency. Visit our new website and sign up. You can sign up as an individual or as an organization. As we get closer to EE Day\, we’ll send you more ideas on how to get involved\, including fun facts to share on social media. Take the Lightbulb Challenge or the Office Lighting Challenge. By taking the challenge\, you agree to replace at least one light bulb with an LED. If each US household purchases just one LED bulb\, consumers could save $500 million annually. Share your experience with friends and colleagues. Encourage mayors/governors to officially proclaim October 5 Energy Efficiency Day. In 2016\, Hawaii Governor David Ige did so\, and this year Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has already followed suit. Check the link above for a sample proclamation that you can share with your mayor and governor. Create and share your own content. You can share the news about Energy Efficiency Day and the benefits of saving energy—and money—through blog posts\, emails\, newsletters\, and social media. Tell your own energy efficiency success story with videos\, photos\, graphics\, or other content. Or share this blog post. When you sign up on the EE Day website\, we will send material you can use. Last year\, EE Day participants generated more than 5\,000 social media posts that were seen by millions of viewers. We were blown away by the creativity and humor of the 2016 posts\, and can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next month. We believe we can make an even bigger impact this year with your help. Send any questions to me at pkiker@aceee.org.   SUMMARY:Energy Efficiency Day END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT UID:72094 DTSTART:20191007 DTEND:20191007 LOCATION:Locations vary DESCRIPTION: The U.N.’s annual day recognizing the importance of shelter.
