TNB Roundtable: Issues and Pitfalls in Nonprofit Collaborations and Mergers @ Boston NonProfit Center
Apr 20 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
TNB Roundtable: Issues and Pitfalls in Nonprofit Collaborations and Mergers @ Boston NonProfit Center

Tech Networks of Boston (also known as TNB) is pleased to invite board chairs, chief executive officers, and other executive level staff members at nonprofit organizations to a Roundtable session on nonprofit collaborations and mergers from the point of view of an attorney who specializes in serving nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. Our featured guest will be Jeffrey Hurwit of Hurwit & Associates.

Here’s what Jeff has to say about this TNB Roundtable session:

With careful planning, the right type of affiliation or even the right type of merger with another organization creates efficiencies and synergies that benefit both the bottom-line and the mission of the organization. However, entering a collaborative relationship with another nonprofit organization can be complicated, daunting, and stressful. In this session we will:

Look at the range of various affiliations, from contractual relationships to full mergers.

Discuss multiple factors (legal, financial, governance, and practical) to be assessed and balanced in arriving at a workable partnership.

Consider challenges and obstacles that commonly arise in sidetracking agreements between organizations.

Jeff will first provide a brief overview of these topics and then open the floor to discussion of the issues and questions that are of most interest and relevance to your organizations.

Here’s a bit more about Jeff:

As a leading expert in nonprofit law, Jeffrey Hurwit represents tax-exempt organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad. Jeff’s practice focuses on nonprofit regulation, governance, and operations. He has particular expertise in nonprofit organizational structures and business models, partnerships and affiliations, and cross-border organizational relationships. Jeff is a frequent speaker on cutting edge issues such as governance and mergers. His firm represents over 700 tax-exempt organizations in a wide range of program areas including education, health care, human services, environmental preservation, arts and culture, advocacy, and philanthropy. He formerly served as Assistant Attorney General in the Massachusetts Division of Public Charities and as staff attorney for WGBH Educational Foundation.

‘We all have many problems on our plates, and all can seem equally important. The goal of this session is to help you to share challenges and concerns of future technology needs, with your peers and with procurement specialists. Expect to get an honest and intimate discussion about what “technology procurement” is and isn’t. It is better to understand and recognize a problem and gain an understanding of the constraints and processes involved with getting things from Point A to Point B, getting them Just-In-Time, and getting them in a cost-effective way.’

TNB Roundtable: How Nonprofits Can Effectively Manage Operational Projects @ Boston NonProfit Center
Nov 16 @ 2:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about how nonprofits can apply project management principles to their operational projects. Our featured guest will be Maria Latimore, founder of the Maria Latimore Group.

Here is what Maria says about this session:

“Successfully implementing operational projects is critical to every nonprofit organization’s success. Yet, research shows that most projects fail. A 2016 study by Standish Group found that about 75% of projects were not completed on time and on budget. The Project Management Institute estimates that in the US for every $1 billion invested in projects, about 12% or $122 million is wasted due to lacking project performance. That’s a lot of time and money for little return.

“In this workshop, Maria will give you some tactical tips to take back and immediately implement to make your critical projects more efficient and successful. These tips will help you and your team to define the project scope and get the right people involved at the right time. You’ll walk away with information that will help to identify when your project is going off track and actions to take to get it back on track. And we’ll have some fun in the process!”

Here’s a little more about Maria:

Maria Latimore is principal of Maria Latimore Group (MLG), a consulting practice that helps nonprofits to deliver projects that drive program services, fundraising and organizational capacity. Maria has helped nonprofits to succeed by customizing project management best practices and training to fit each organization’s context and culture. She has over 30 years of project management experience and was a vice president in State Street Corporation’s Information Technology and Business Operations Transformation divisions.

Maria is a PMP certified project manager, and has a bachelor of business management degree from Simmons College. She is on the board of directors of The Dignity Institute, the Community Engagement Committee of Nuestra Comunidad, and the Technology Committee at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at University of Massachusetts Boston.

In keeping with the spirit of the TNB Roundtable series, this session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. This will be a professional development opportunity for nonprofit professionals who want to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.

This session is for employees of nonprofit organizations. It is not designed to meet the needs of vendors, volunteers, students, consultants, job-seekers, and others.

TNB Roundtable: Building the Best Nonprofit Website for the Cheapest Price @ Boston NonProfit Center
Feb 22 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Tech Networks of Boston is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about web strategies for nonprofit organizations. Our featured guests will David Delmar and Muigai Unaka of Resilient Coders.

Here’s what David and Muigai say about this session:

“You know your organization needs a new website. You’re just not sure whether to use Square Space, WordPress, Wix, Google Sites, or whether to hire an agency, a freelancer, or your friend’s nephew. Some options are free, some cost dozens of dollars, and some cost tens of thousands of dollars. You’re unclear about the pros and cons of each option, and which path is right for your organization, at this particular point in your journey.

“Building a website is like buying a bicycle: Sure, there are options that are more souped-up than others, and that are priced accordingly. But the most important thing is that it be the right fit. Let’s determine the right fit for you, together.”

Tech Networks of Boston Roundtable: HIPAA Compliance for Nonprofits @ EMPath
Jul 25 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) exists to provide integrated technology services to nonprofits and other mission-based organizations, and it’s also our privilege to offer you professional development opportunities through our Roundtable series. For this Tech Networks of Boston Roundtable, we are grateful to 501Partners for suggesting the topic and generously underwriting the session.

Our July 25th Roundtable session will focus on HIPAA compliance for nonprofits. While many nonprofit organizations are anxious about both the legal and technical implications, they rarely have an opportunity to discuss both issues in one workshop. In this Roundtable session, we hope to remedy that! An experienced attorney, Marni Levitt, will serve as our legal expert. Our Tech Networks of Boston colleague, Peter Franklin, will serve as the information technology expert, answering questions about what kind of changes to your IT infrastructure might be advisable.

Here’s what Marni and Peter say about this session:

“Do you have healthcare partners or clients who are asking whether your business is HIPAA-compliant, or who are requesting that you sign a ‘business associate agreement’ (BAA) before they will do business with you? If so, this session will give you a solid understanding as to what it means to be a ‘business associate’ through specific case studies, as well as an understanding of what you are agreeing to when you sign a BAA, and the types of policies and systems that you need in place to be HIPAA compliant.”

This presentation is appropriate for small, medium and large non-profits, and for C-Suite leaders, including CEOs, COOs, CTOs, CMOs. No previous knowledge of HIPAA compliance is necessary.

Full scholarships are available to qualified employees of nonprofit organizations.

Please apply by using the link below by July 6th. Applicants will be notified of acceptance on July 9th.
