Building Common Ground - Nonprofit Leadership in Cross-Sector Collaboration
Friday, April 26, noon
Page Commons & Diamond Building
Colby College and Maine Association of Nonprofits will hold the fifth annual Nonprofit Leadership conference on April 26th. The purpose of this year's Nonprofit Leadership Conference is to start down the pathway of bringing civility back to the conversation and find that common ground in defining a new system dynamic. To help achieve the purpose four areas will be explored:
1. Taking responsibility to meet shared community challenges;
2. Recognizing and allowing diverse voices to add vitality to a defined common purpose;
3. Revitalizing the bonds between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors through collaborative efforts;
4. And removing the barriers to building trust and common ground.
The conference begins at noon with a keynote address by Professor Robert Putnam, Peter and Isabel Malkin Professor of Public Policy, at Harvard Kennedy School, and concludes with the Maine Philanthropy Awards dinner and celebration.
Registration deadline is April 19 and is available online at www.NonprofitMaine.org or by calling 207-871-1885.
Entire Conference - MANP Members: $110 | Nonmembers: $185
($10 off all additional employees/board members from the same organization)
