2018 Regional Meetings

Join Us for MNN’s Regional Meetings! 

Federal Tax Reform: Where Do We Go From Here?

The end of 2017 brought a new federal tax bill, along with a lot of confusion and concern for nonprofits. We know that nonprofits across the Commonwealth share similar questions about what this new legislation will mean for their work, including fundraising, meeting bottom lines, and most importantly, the people and communities they serve. In a series of forward-looking Regional Meetings, MNN will join with experts in the field to enumerate the ways Massachusetts nonprofits can prepare for the new challenges, as well as take advantage of new opportunities, posed by tax reform in 2018 and beyond.

In addition, MNN will be providing a membership update, reviewing new and expanded services and programs to ensure that you are taking advantage of all of your memberships benefits and to give non-members the best possible reasons to join. We will also discuss other policy updates and provide some time for informal networking.

MNN’s Regional Meetings are held annually in every region of the state. They bring together nonprofits from all subsectors to network, share best practices, and collaborate on issues important to the sector. These meetings are open to all nonprofits. Find your region’s meeting below.
