The Central New York Community Foundation’s new President & CEO, Melanie Littlejohn, wants to hear from you! Join us at one of our community listening and networking events for an opportunity to contribute to the conversation surrounding Central New York’s shared future.


  • Enjoy some light fare and networking with Melanie and fellow community members
  • Listening session & conversation: Participants will have the opportunity to share their insights on the region’s biggest strengths, opportunities and needs, as well as ask pertinent questions

Registration is FREE to attend, but space is limited. Please register for only one of the four event sessions. Maximum of two tickets available per registration.

Due to the timing of this event, FREE street parking will be available near the Community Folk Art Center location. In addition, the CNY Philanthropy Center parking lot (9 minute walk) will also be available to use. Please find the walking directions here: 

  • Please do not park in the lot adjacent to the Philanthropy Center in front of the salon – this is a private lot and your car will be towed. Please be prepared to park on the street. There is street parking available on East Fayette, East Washington and Genesee Streets.
  • Parking in the lot directly in front of the CNY Philanthropy Center is reserved for Central New York Community Foundation guests and tenants and cannot be guaranteed for event participants.
