Title
Bigger Impact Together - What Your Organization Can Do to Forge Stronger Collaboration Through Creative Partnerships and Mergers

Presenters
Jim White, Executive Director, Nonprofit Association of Oregon
Jenn Clemo, Director of Nonprofit Leadership & Resources, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

Especially in challenging economic times, nonprofit leaders often question how to maximize effectiveness and find greater efficiency in support of their missions. Deepened collaboration, creative partnerships, and even mergers feel like urgent solutions. Based on their recent experience merging the Center for Nonprofit Stewardship into NAO, Jim White, NAO’s Executive Director, and Jenn Clemo, now NAO’s Director of Nonprofit Leadership and Resources, will discuss the principles of deep collaboration and partnerships that can lead two organizations to unify. In this one-hour webinar, learn about the core success factors identified by Jim and Jenn, and discuss how your organization might benefit from a strategic unification.

Participants will be able to:

  • Better understand the necessary framework for deep collaboration and essential elements of mergers
  • Recognize the human and cultural awareness it takes for a successful unification
  • Identify tips and pitfalls to be aware of when considering their options

Please send questions and comments ahead of the session to training@nonprofitoregon.org

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
