No one understands the challenges and joys of working with a non-profit except for your fellow non-profit colleagues. Connections are the integral pieces that affect the growth and success of your organization to help establish and support your financial viability and to spread your mission.
At the Princeton Community Works Annual Conference, you have the opportunity to meet and greet with more than 400 attendees. Networking in such a large crowd can sometimes be overwhelming for some people, but our fun and friendly icebreakers take the “work” out of networking!
That effective and successful approach is consistent throughout the entire conference. Feel free to meet total strangers and introduce yourself! Like you, every person in the room is attending because of his or her commitment to the non-profit community.
During your workshops, which are smaller and more intimate, you get an opportunity to connect with people who are also facing the challenges of non-profits. Here you can share insights and exchange both knowledge and concerns with one another. Workshops offer the chance to confirm that other leaders have the same goals and obstacles and that together we can succeed and make an impact.
But why wait to attend the PCW conference to make new non-profit friends when you can meet many of these amazing people now?
If you volunteer for the Planning Committee, the meetings are very interactive and you will be working closely with others, getting to know them on a more personal level.
Remember to bring business cards to all meetings!
