What People Say About Nonprofit Executives Meetings:

“As a mid-career nonprofit leader, I made invaluable connections among the Nonprofit Executive group. Not only did I enjoy meeting like-minded professionals, but I also gained invaluable advice that helped inform my career goals and ultimately gave the impetus for starting my own consulting business.”

“Thank you for hosting networking events like this. I benefited on several levels – meeting people with similar career journeys, learning to articulate more clearly what type of work I’d like to pursue, and enjoying talking with other professionals.”

Nonprofit Executive Network gives networking a good name! It's efficient! You're online, so no leaving work early or arriving late just to stand in a crowded room where you only connect with five of the 50 people there. It's broad! NEN is a national/international platform, exposing you to a wide variety of resources, whether you carry out, or support a nonprofit mission. It's focused! The meeting cap of 50 attendees facilitates meaningful interactions, allowing you to concentrate your follow up with people who can make a difference to your career or mission. See you there.

Thank you Leigh!”
