Adapting Learning Events for Nonprofits and Our Community Due To COVID
We have just completed the first half of 2020, and everything since mid-March has required an adjustment to plans in place prior to the pandemic. During the next half of the year, we will be continuing to adjust the Nonprofit Network programs to help meet the learning and resource needs of local nonprofit professionals.
For the remainder of 2020, we anticipate holding only online learning due to the coronavirus. Since April, our peer groups have been held on Zoom. We do not hold peer groups in July, so virtual peer groups will resume in August. Several learning events have been delayed.
There is no lack of important and relevant topics to cover during this time. We need your help by participating in a survey to determine what helps you the most in your important work. Please watch your email for a link to the survey and complete by Wednesday, July 15.

 Stay safe, be well, and as always, stay connected,
