We're working out final tweaks with the new TSNe-Bulletin. With the new website launch last year, it was time to update our e-newsletter templates to more closely match the new design. We had 3 main goals in mind: to make the e-newsletters warmer, friendlier and easier to navigate.
Please let us know how you think we did with this issue, the first using the new design.
Leadership in the New Normal: A Convening on Collaboration, Networks and Shared Services
Join TSNE and a variety of regional nonprofit leaders for a full-day convening in Boston on Thursday, April 14.
Learn from colleagues who are already structuring their work differently in order to deepen the impact they are able to provide for their communities. We'll focus on networks, shared work, staff and space alliances, and the need for authentic inclusion to create social justice.
Features include a keynote speech by renowned community development expert Bill Traynor, workshops, a luncheon panel and opportunities to network with colleagues from around the sector.
