Midpoint Music Festival Needs Your Help

The Midpoint Music Festival will be back Sept. 21-24. This year MPMF has teamed up with Give Back Cincinnati for volunteer recruitment and management. And the recruitment process has kicked off in ernest now. There are at least 100 volunteers needed to work stages, sell merch., and staff the doors. It's a really fun experience you basically get to hang out at venue all night listening to some great music. But in addition you get the following for staffing just one evening (of course volunteering multiple night is appreciated, but not required):

If you're interested in learning more or singing up check out the volunteer sign-up page, or the MPMF website.


Cincinnati Mayoral Forum

Give Back Cincinnati and Legacy are collaborating (along with many other Young Professional Organizations) to create a Mayoral Candidate Forum focused at issues for Young Profesionals. The event will be hosted by CET on August 30th and will be broadcasted live on CET. However there is also the opportunity for 250 Young Professionals to join in the event as live studio participants. You can register for the event (please indicate any YP organizations you are with in the comments section), at Give Back Cincinnati's website.

The Business Courier had a nice write up about the event yesterday. I'd love to see many of you out there.
