Start something good: host

Choose to be the person who gets good things started. Register to host an On the Table. You’ll be among thousands of people who have lent their vision, imagination and energy to shaping conversations with friends old and new, all around a meal and a topic. Hosting is the first step to doing something great in the city, and it’s made easy with guidance from our Conversation and Action Guide, and other media.

So, you’ve registered to host.
What’s next?

Hosts are invited to join our On the Table page on Facebook to read tips, share insights, ask questions and get ready for the big day. You also will find motivation in the stories from hosts who let their table ideas move them into action – from applying for special funding awards to launching local, national and even global initiatives.
