CO, Too!


Business practices, yes…..but CO, Too!

As nonprofits, we’ve heard and learned from business. Now it’s time to broaden our learning base and hear from another voice: CO, community organizing. Take this opportunity before Dr. King’s holiday to celebrate and learn from his legacy of community organizing:

  • Extend your outreach
  • Use technology and social media to spread your mission
  • Engage your board, staff and volunteers more effectively 

….While increasing your impact 

Whether you’re an arts organization or an AIDS network, an environment group or a community center, hear from a diverse panel of experts about how they use principles of community organizing to deliver their missions.

Meet with the panelists and explore how to apply their approaches to your organizations.
