CCC Maker has sent a letter of support and is eager to be a part of the Nation of Makers, a new organization that was formed on November 15, 2016 to connect makers and makerspaces across the country.
The idea behind this organization is to support makers by helping maker organizations. Read the Nation of Makers Executive Summary to gain a better understanding of what this group plans and how you can get involved. One way to start is to write a letter of support from your organization describing why the maker movement matters and why this Nation of Makers organization adds value to the community.
Join the Nation of Makers newsletter list so you can keep updated on this exciting national project. They are also seeking an Executive Director from the maker community and are asking makers to spread the word.
