Centennial Reports

Let’s Get Together (again)!

Remember gathering in 2013 to dream and discuss and build a Centennial vision for ENF? Want to hear what we’ve been up to since then? First, thank you again and again to all of you who helped to host, facilitate, organize, and contribute to the planning effort that took place in fifteen cities across the U.S. six years ago. With your input and much research and dialogue, ENF completed its Centennial Plan in 2014. We’ve been diligently working towards our goals ever since and we would love to share our progress and hear your thoughts.

So, please join us on this nationwide tour in 2019 for a conversation and a meal! We will discuss the headlines of our Centennial accomplishments, solicit input, and reconnect with other Nesters and Alumni in your town. More information and invitations will be sent out in the following weeks. If you would like to be involved in the planning or hosting of these gatherings, please contact Cara Varney, Development Director at
