Nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers in the northeast corner of the state were eager to learn more and to collaborate locally after attending a training in the spring, led by Nancy Bacon, Washington Nonprofits Associate Director. In response, Washington Nonprofits is convening the first in a series of network meetings for the region, starting Sept. 10 in Newport, Washington.
“For this kick-off network meeting, we will do an exercise to identify some of the more acute needs that nonprofits in the region currently have,” said Gabriel Cruden, eastern region program manager for Washington Nonprofits. “This will help inform future topics for network meetings as well as the selection of trainings we bring to the area.”
The network meetings will also provide an excellent venue for nonprofits to learn more about what others in the network are doing and to find opportunities for collaboration and symbiotic service offerings.
The meeting, scheduled for the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months (except November will be on the second Wednesday), will be hosted by the Hospitality House, 216 South Washington Ave., Newport, WA. Anyone with involvement or interest in nonprofits from anywhere in the region, including Idaho, are invited to attend. A no host lunch will be available starting at 11:30 a.m.
