Quarterly Nonprofit Networking Roundtable

Calling Executive Directors and C-Suite Level Executives/Senior Management

It takes a village! And that’s especially true in the nonprofit sector. Hear from leaders of some of the most effective nonprofits in our region on their success strategies, the importance of collaborating and networking to enhance your value proposition, expanding your capacity, and how to better serve your clients.

This is the first of four quarterly roundtable discussions to help your organization grow and thrive as you interface with others who, like you, lead our region’s nonprofits.

This session will give you the opportunity to:
Ask some of the tough questions of nonprofit experts who’ve been there.
Meet others like yourself and determine if there are ways you might work together to benefit each of your nonprofits.

A continental breakfast will be served while you listen and engage with these expert panelists.

Date/Time: Wednesday, March 29 from 10 AM to 12 PM (NOON)

Location: Greater Cincinnati Foundation Offices, 720 E Pete Rose Way Ste 120, in the Mashburn River Room

Emcee: Rob Reifsnyder, retired CEO of United Way
