Networking

Rooted in the not-for-profit culture, networking has become organic to third sector business. Our efforts to market our services, raise more dollars and advocate for our cause has made it essential to success. California State University describes networking as "connecting with people of like interests for the purpose of uncovering opportunities, identifying landmines and learning of best practices." With today's increased competition and demands for transparency, the need to work together becomes even more critical.

But sychronizing schedules can take tremendous amounts of time and energy--two resources in limited supply. The Nonprofit Resource Network assists in filling the needed role of "networking coordinator," providing opportunities for formal and informal networking, for group and individual interactions.
