On Wednesday, October 12, 2011, Epic Web Studios will participate in the Nonprofit Partnership's 11th Annual Nonprofit Day. This year's theme, 'Weaving the Fabric of our Community', speaks to the need to rally nonprofits, churches, schools, and caring individuals throughout our region to support and maintain a quality of life that we collectively treasure.

The Morning Keynote, "The Five Qualities of Successful Boards", will be given by Carol Weisman. The lunchtime keynote, "How Churches Weave the Fabric", will be given by David Campbell. Mr. Campbell is the author of "American Grace" and an associate professor at the University of Notre Dame.

The rest of the day will be filled with informative workshops on how to 'Weave the Fabric', and Epic Web Studios looks forward to participating. To learn more about Nonprofit Day 2011, please visit the Nonprofit Partnership's website at: www.TheNonprofitPartnership.org
