Panel Discussion:

"Listen and Learn: Consultants Who Have Helped Nonprofits Thrive During These Challenging Times Share Their Insights."

We in the nonprofit sector work to drive mission regardless of policy decisions set in Washington, Springfield and City Council, though often our efforts are made more difficult because of them. This year’s program brings together four ACN experts from several practice areas who have engaged with NFP leaders across the sector. They will discuss how their clients, and they personally, have addressed some of the challenges caused by budget cuts. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn from our experienced consultants and leave this program with new insight and tools for thriving during these challenging times.
