Spooling up for Day One of the Gathering
Then the Social Enterprise Institute (which is also a part of our local host committee) is taking attendees on a cruise around the Long Beach Harbor. Right after that (!) is the official opening reception for the Gathering: a Social Enterprise Marketplace and ice cream social. I've done the Marketplace every year in the past: it's a great chance to meet SEA members and see the incredible variety of social mission enterprises present.
Time to get a cup of coffee and get ready for a busy day of exploring the social enterprise field!
