2017 Regional Meetings

Join Us for MNN’s Regional Meetings! 

Nonprofit Advocacy in 2017: Opportunities and Challenges

There are a number of emerging public policy issues at the state and federal level that will have an immediate impact on Massachusetts nonprofits. These issues span across subsector, budget size, and region. It is more critical than ever that nonprofit leaders are informed, involved, and ready to advocate on behalf of their organizations and their colleagues. Join MNN and fellow nonprofit leaders to learn about key legislative issues impacting nonprofits, share best practices for effective advocacy, and plan your strategy to respond to important legislation.

In addition, MNN will be providing a membership update that will include a review of new and expanded services and programs to ensure that you are taking advantage of all of your memberships benefits.

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.
