New Affinity Group - Nonprofit Communications

We are excited to add a 7th affinity group to our lineup! 

The Nonprofit Communications Affinity Group will focus on the marketing and communications techniques that philanthropies throughout the community utilize for successful appeals, campaigns and events. This group will provide a space for nonprofit communicators to share resources (ex: printers that offer great products at nonprofit prices), campaign ideas for fundraising and stewardship needs, resources for graphic design, and any other pressing needs that those in the marketing space need help with. 

We invite you to join us for our first meeting today, November 17!  Click here for details and registration. Contact Claire Lechtenberg with questions or to be added to the reminder distribution list.
