Young Nonprofit Professional Network of Grand Rapids (YNPN-GR)

Free *Must be current YNPN-GR Member

YNPN-GR June Conversation Starter: Advocacy is a powerful tool for many organizations in achieving their mission. But while pursuing this mission-focused advocacy, nonprofit professionals often wrestle with difficult questions around what actions fall within their legal rights and what activities are restricted. Join YNPN-GR virtually as we learn from Bo Torres and Wendy Holtvluwer, who are experienced in navigating and deciphering these often confusing boundaries. We are excited to become better equipped advocates and engage in a dynamic discussion around empowering nonprofit professionals in advocating for their mission. Come with questions you’d like answered, or simply an open-mind to learn! Stay tuned for part 2 in the fall.
