TNB Roundtable: It’s Legal for Nonprofits to Lobby, Organize, and Advocate! @ Boston NonProfit Center
Aug 2 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on how nonprofits can lobby, organize, and advocate without jeopardizing their tax-exampt status. Our featured guest will be Jeff Berry, a professor of political science at Tufts University and co-author of “A Voice for Nonprofits.”

Here is what Jeff says about this session:

“How strong is your organization’s voice before government? Is your nonprofit an effective advocate before the state legislature and the agencies that regulate it? Although some 501(c)3s are effective in influencing government officials, too many nonprofits do a poor job in representing their clients and constituents. In many ways this is understandable. With scarce resources, devoting money and energy to lobbying the glacially moving state government may seem like a poor return on investment. Yet inactivity by nonprofits is frequently the result of not understanding the basics of nonprofit law. Too many nonprofit leaders neuter their own organization because they believe that they are not allowed to lobby because they have c3 status.

“These are tough times and we need nonprofits that are active and effective in the policymaking process. Let’s talk about this!”

Here’s a little more about Jeff:

Jeffrey Berry is John Richard Skuse Professor of Political Science at Tufts University. He is an expert on both national and local politics and has a strong research focus on nonprofits, advocacy, and foundations. Having served as chair of the board of directors of the Alzheimer’s Association of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Berry is a practitioner as well as an academic analyst. In addition to “A Voice for Nonprofits,” his books include “The Outrage Industry,” “The Rebirth of Urban Democracy,” and “Lobbying and Policy Change.” He is a frequent commentator on Massachusetts politics with local media. Berry is the recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award from Tufts and of many book awards from the American Political Science Association. His current research examines the response (or lack thereof) of foundations to the Trump administration.

TNB Roundtable: Designing Effective Public Engagement for Nonprofits @ Boston NonProfit Center
Aug 16 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on how nonprofits can design effect public engagement strategies. Our featured guest will be Eric Gordon, director of the Engagement Lab at Emerson College.

Here is what Eric says about this session:

“What does effective public engagement look like? Based on the Public Engagement Roadmap, a five-city experiment on innovative public engagement practices, this workshop will include creative ideation, team building, problem identification, and empathy building. Too often, engaging constituents remains a nebulous process without clear expectations or desired outcomes. This workshop is meant to guide nonprofits through this murky process and provide strategies for planning public engagement that is appropriate for organizations and communities. Participants will engage in design exercises and play a board game about public participation.”

Here’s a little more about Eric:

Eric Gordon is a professor of civic media at Emerson College and the director of the Engagement Lab, a research and design lab that investigates and creates media and technology to reduce disparities in civic participation. Eric’s research focuses on media-based public participation, the role of play in civic life, and the ways in which civic organizations build media and technology into their missions. Eric is a designer of civic games and interactive processes and he has consulted with the UNDP, UNICEF, and local governments around the world on building effective public participation.

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.

TNB Roundtable: Why and How Nonprofits Build Political Power @ Boston NonProfit Center

TNB Roundtable: Why and How Nonprofits Build Political Power @ Boston NonProfit Center

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about why and how nonprofit organizations build political power. Our featured guests will be Jordan Berg Powers of Mass Alliance and Lisette Le of Massachusetts Voter Table.

Many nonprofit organizations that have historically been devoted to direct services to individuals, families, and communities are now becoming aware that they can play a role to advocate and influence public policy. Some of them are extremely concerned that key decisions are actually being made when lawmakers are voted into office, and are looking to understand what they can and cannot do to voice and take action about these concerns. In this session, nonprofit professionals will learn about strategies to influence public policy and ways to engage members/constituents in electoral campaigns, while complying with 501c3 IRS statutes.

Please note:

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.

“Successfully implementing various projects helps nonprofits to meet their missions and remain viable.

This super roundtable will give participants the essential vocabulary, practices and tools to more efficiently manage and deliver their projects.

“The concepts will be presented in a simple step-by-step manner and reinforced with interactive hands-on exercises reflecting real-life nonprofit projects. Participants will learn how to immediately apply tactical processes and tools to better plan, execute, and control their projects, and make their work less stressful. These tactics will fully engage all stakeholders, increase project productivity, and thereby increase organizational capacity.”

TNB Roundtable: Nonprofit Data & Evaluation – What’s Class Got to Do with It? @ Boston NonProfit Center
Apr 10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) exists to provide integrated technology services to nonprofits and other mission-based organizations. It’s also our pleasure to offer you professional development opportunities that are both free of charge and free of sales pitches.

TNB is delighted to invite you to a Roundtable session about class issues in nonprofit data and evaluation. Our featured guests will be Anne Phillips and Denise Moorehead of Class Action.

Here’s a little bit about this session:

When is the last time you thought about data, evaluation and analytics – and simultaneously thought about socioeconomic class or classism? If you are like most people, the answer might be “never.” But you’d be missing an important component of the way class background has shaped and continues to shape your worldview. It plays a role in the way we communicate information, in the data we value most, and often even in our comfort level with the evaluation process.

Join Class Action’s Executive Director Anne Phillips and digital content editor Denise Moorehead in an exploration of your own class background, that of others in your workplace, your funders and constituents. Then share strategies for working across class differences in your data and evaluation work to make the information collected useful for all stakeholders.

Here’s a little more about Anne:

Anne Phillips has working-class roots, and was raised in a modest working and lower middle class neighborhood with a great public school district. Anne and her two siblings were all first generation college students, as her parents made a pact that their kids would get more education than they did. She was initially inspired to work for social change by Paul Wellstone, who ran his first grassroots senatorial campaign during her high school years. Influenced by great lefty professors during college, Anne became an activist, working on fair pay for campus service staff, anti-sweatshop and anti-globalization movements of the late 90s. Anne went on to become a community organizer and then fundraiser on behalf of many different causes including the environment, reproductive rights, worker rights and healthcare. Her passions (in no particular order) include bicycling, swimming, building community, racial justice and her two grey cats.

Here’s a little more about Denise:

Denise Moorehead was an only child for 11 years, giving her access to opportunities beyond those of most kids in a lower-middle-class family. During this time, her African-American parents also increased their educational and earning power in conjunction with advancements made available by the Civil Rights movement. So, as a young child, Denise was often in the company of upper-middle-class children in these settings and working-class children in her neighborhood. Her parents prepared her to fit in with all groups. Today, Denise works with nonprofits and small businesses through Moorehead Creative Solutions to tell their stories evocatively – while being an evangelist for eliminating classism.

Building Values Based Human Resources Practices @ The Nonprofit Center
Jan 23 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Building Values Based Human Resources Practices @ The Nonprofit Center

Employees are an organization’s most important resource. Organizations that walk their talk, live their core values, and embed them in their everyday practices are more successful in attracting and retaining passionate and committed staff.

Perhaps the most powerful approach to bringing your values to life is to design and implement human resources policies, systems and practices that reflect and promote those values.

In this half-day workshop, you will spend time identifying and understanding which values are implicit, which are explicit and how the design of your current human resources systems helps to support or contradict those values. Participants will spend time developing a plan to improve this alignment within their organizations.
