It is good policy to look ahead. A Thousand Friends of Virginia’s Future (TFVF) is a 23-year old Northern Virginia-based non-profit organization that, without using these exact words, has consistently promoted regional resilience through sound planning and governance that places decision-making at the level of impact. TFVF is being revived to engage in some significant sustainable economic development work that includes a non-partisan public education program.
As you are someone who cares about the future and has ties to Virginia, your input is strongly requested! On SaturdayDecember 6th TFVF will host a free public gathering in the 2nd floor meeting room at the Central Arlington, VA public library from 1:15 – 3:15pm. The organization’s proposed work plan will be conveyed in an audio-visual presentation for the purposes of eliciting reactions and discussion. No financial contributions will be requested. Please mark your calendars to attend and RSVP via email to RegionalArchitect@gmail.com. Your friends and associates are also welcome, but are requested to RSVP. Those who choose to do so are also invited to join us in enjoying drinks and appetizers afterwards at a neighboring restaurant.
The Central library is located at 1015 N. Quincy Street, only 5 blocks from the Virginia Square-GMU or Ballston Orange and Silver line Metro stations, although the library does offer free parking. Please do let me know if you have questions. I look forward to your presence and possible interest in participating in a cooperative regional alliance. Thanks!
