Productive & Inspiring Meetings of the Minds

“Connecting to, conversing with, and collaborating on ideas with other likeminded people is critical to our overall success as an organization.”– Eileen Greenlay, Director of Development

Recently, Col. Duncan Milne, President, and Eileen Greenlay, Director of Development, of Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services visited with funders, introduced themselves to new friends, consulted with our Fedcap partners, and attended networking events during a trip to New York City.During our separate conversations with New York Health Foundation and Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, we uncovered that both Program Officers work together on large initiatives that benefit veterans in New York with some of our partners such as Hope for the Warriors and RAND.At an event at Civic Hall, we were introduced to New York Tech Alliance and Cyber Security Consulting Ops and plan to bring them both on board in our cybersecurity initiatives.While talking cybersecurity with our partner, London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) Foundation, we also enjoyed finding out that one of our contacts, son of two former Marine Corps veterans and an Army veteran was born on the installation – Camp Pendleton, CA where Col. Milne was stationed for 10 years.Dixon Center – we are the capacity builder, the dot connector, the collaborator seeker, and the strategic partner. And we bring small worlds together.
