Lane County Nonprofit Network (LCNN)

Our Lane County Nonprofit Network (LCNN) is designed for nonprofit professionals, board members, and other volunteers who want the opportunity to strengthen their skillsets, learn new strategies, and network with other nonprofit leaders in your region. LCNN is a series of eight curated sessions that bring forward the most pressing needs of nonprofits today. Experts in fundraising, DEIJ, financial management, succession planning, HR, governance, and more will be leading LCNN to bring you the most up-to-date, creative, and thought-provoking strategies and insight to help you grow and lead your organizations now and into the future. LCNN provides the space and opportunities for nonprofit leaders to learn together while also allowing you to network and collaborate with your peers throughout your region.
