Peer Learning Opportunities

We believe that your peers hold a wealth of information and experiences that should be shared to help all nonprofit organizations move towards meeting their missions. This is why we have put a variety of roundtable opportunities on the calendar for 2017. We want to give nonprofit professionals a confidential space to share ideas and discuss solutions to challenges. All of our roundtable offerings are expertly facilitated by CRC staff to ensure you get the most out of every meeting.
