The Executive Director Breakfast Club has officially transitioned to JVA Consulting. The Breakfast Club meeting will continue to take place at the same time and location, and the only major change will be a fee of $10 per workshop. If you have any questions regarding the Breakfast Club moving forward, please contact JVA Consulting at 303-477-4896. The full schedule for 2014 trainings can be found by clicking here.



JVA will be looking for nonprofit agencies to “sponsor” the Breakfast Club for one quarter of the year. The sponsor will be responsible for picking up the breakfast donation from Mugs, coming to the meeting early to help set up, staying after the meeting to help clean up, and returning the coffee carafe to Mugs. In exchange, your agency will receive free attendance at Breakfast Club meetings for the entire year as well as your logo placed on Breakfast Club materials and the JVA website. Pathways Hospice has agreed to be the sponsor for the first quarter, but if you are interested in sponsoring in the second, third, or fourth quarters, please contact JVA Consulting @ 303-477-4896.
