displaced by the original quakeare still virtually homeless. Residing in tents distributed by the United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) is proving punitive, as the tents swiftly become useless tatters. Continued on pg.66

The title ICOSA is an analogy for great connections and collaboration. An icosahedron, the strongest
of the polygons, combines 20 equilateral triangular faces together. We use this analogy because we
believe that if we all work together and collaborate, we too can become stronger just like the triangles.

ost of you have been readers of ICOSA since our inception. At that time, just over two-and-a-half years
ago, we were three people with a dream who wouldnt take no for an answer. We knew that we could make a magazine about great connectors and collaborators meaningful and valuable to the reader.
Since that time, we have grown a lot and have adjusted to magazine life. Today we have four employees and an amazing coalition of more than 100 regular volunteer collaborators. We have grown to more than 10,000 subscribers, roughly 5,500 Facebook friends, and have just launched a newly designed web presence, which has regular visitors in more than 25 countries.
Moreover, three months ago we had the distinct privilege of partnering with the Experience Pros radio show to share stories from ICOSA here in the Rocky Mountains. In that short period of time, we have grown from few listeners to just over 100,000 in our time slot. Because of the richness of the stories, the radio show is expanding as well. Starting September 6, 2011, Connect and Collaborate
with ICOSA will begin broadcasting five days a week in 17 states, including Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois, Southern California, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. Please tune in Monday through Friday from 11:20 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (MST) to learn from these amazing collaborators.
So, to all of the connectors and collaborators academic, business, community, and government we say thank you for the guidance and support of the ICOSA movement. We will continue to spread the message and we will continue to DO! Because we know that it is more than leadership its leading!
Join the movement and DO something today!
All the best,
