2015 Regional Meetings

2015 regional meetings

Massachusetts has millions of dollars available for workforce training and professional development – but very few nonprofits take advantage of this opportunity.

Join the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network to learn about ways that your organization can support and develop its employees through the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program: a statewide program that provides employers in the Commonwealth with funding to train and develop their employees.

At last year’s regional meetings, the need for training and professional development in the sector continuously rose to the top of the list as a primary concern among 300+ nonprofit leaders. To address this feedback, these interactive and informative meetings will provide an overview of the features and benefits of each of the Workforce Training Fund Grant programs, the amount of available funding, and how to apply for the grants. After the overview, attendees will participate in a facilitated conversation to identify and address professional development needs across the nonprofit sector to ensure we have a strong pipeline of nonprofit leaders.

The regional meetings will be most beneficial for senior leaders and human resource professionals in the nonprofit sector whose organizations are eligible for the Workforce Training Fund. Click here to find out if you are eligible. However, representatives from all organizations are welcome to attend as there will also be a broader discussion on training needs and opportunities across the entire sector.

These morning sessions will take place from late February through April in each of the state’s eight regions and are an opportunity for local nonprofit leaders to receive vital tools as well as network and discuss issues facing the sector in their region.
