UPCOMING THRIVE FORUMS
Join Thrive for a community forum and luncheon on the topic of housing the nonprofit workforce and the impacts of the current housing climate on the nonprofit sector. There will be a panel of speakers as well as opportunities for networking. Lunch will be provided.
Each quarter, Thrive holds a Community Forum bringing distinguished speakers and panels of experts to present information on a diverse range of timely subjects. Past forum topics include:

Structured networking is a key element of each community forum. Our annual Thrive Networking Extravaganza includes basic strategic breakouts and intentional, on-the-spot matching of needs and assets. A table is available for members to bring informational materials.
