Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 306: Sacramento Meeting Place

One of the large health-focused foundations in this state, The California Endowment, has a Sacramento regional office at 14th & K Street, just a few blocks from CPCA.  Part of the office includes the Sacramento Meeting Place, which consists of several meeting and conference rooms that are available for free to non-profit and community groups.

I first learned about this community resource when I was still working at PPMM, and we used the larger of the rooms for an Ed Leaders meeting. Since I've been at CPCA, we've used the larger and smaller rooms several times, as it can be helpful to get out of our office and into a new environment for certain types of gatherings.

What I particularly like about these meetings rooms is that each of them has an inspirational and motivational name: Power Up, Progress, and Change. Although this may seem a bit contrived, it actually is easier to feel creative and innovative in a room with that sort of association than in a typical Conference Room!
