Peer-to-Peer Roundtables:

  • Human Resources Roundtable plans to meet twice during October — one session will feature “hot topics” breakout groups and the second session will utilize a guest speaker and discussion format for an HR topic identified by the group. Please contact Paula Van Ness at if you are interested in joining this group.
  • The inaugural gathering of a Roundtable for Communications and Marketing professionals will take place.  This group is an offshoot of two previous sessions on nonprofit communications presented by Tamara McKinney through “Ask an Expert.”

Survival Series for Nonprofit CEO’s/Executive Directors:

  • This series of 10 sessions for a cohort of top executives serving area nonprofits will hold its 8th session which will focus on problem-solving and decision making.  This series is being co-presented by Patti Caldwell and Paula Van Ness.  Please email Paula if you are interested in information about joining the next cohort.
