The Washington Area Villages Exchange (WAVE) is a forum through which nonprofit villages in the Washington D.C metropolitan area share experience and ideas. It works with senior serving and inter-generational organizations and agencies, and encourages the growth and improvement of the village movement within the Washington area.
WAVE has quarterly meetings hosted by member organizations on a rotating basis in the three jurisdictions. The meeting include speaker covering a topic of interest to the member organizations with time for questions (several recent topics are listed below). After the main presentation, specific time is provided for a couple of concurrent discussion groups focusing on areas of interest to member villages.
WAVE IT Group is currently taking applications for testing of free village administrative software. Go to the IT Work Group page under Groups.
Washington Area Villages Exchange will hold its next quarterly meeting on Monday, January 26, 2015, at the Bethesda/Chevy Chase Regional Services Center at 4805 Edgemoor Ln, Bethesda, MD 20814 (240) 777-8200.
For directions, Google from your starting point. The building is near the Bethesda metro station and there is parking in the county garage. The County garage can be entered from Woodmont Av or Edgemoor Ln. Make sure you enter the County garage rather than the adjacent private garage - there is a big price difference between the two.
Directions are at http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/bcc/directions.html.
