Setting the Agenda: MNN Nonprofit Public Policy Roundtable Meetings
†Generously hosted by Cape Cod Volunteers
As Massachusetts nonprofit organizations try to meet increasing needs with decreasing resources, the upcoming gubernatorial race, a legislative session beginning next year, and a rapidly-changing political environment provide a unique opportunity to promote initiatives that support our sector.
MNN needs to hear from you to help us craft a public policy agenda to address the current needs of Massachusetts nonprofits. †We need your knowledge, experience, and vision to help chart the course for our public policy agenda.
Make sure your voice is heard: join us for a candid roundtable discussion during which we will solicit your ideas for initiatives that serve and protect the entire sector. Your input from these events will be used to help craft a Massachusetts nonprofit legislative agenda to share with gubernatorial and other state legislative candidates and develop a public policy agenda for the next legislative session. We believe these actions will lead to a stronger nonprofit sector that is better equipped to serve our communities.
These free roundtable events will take place throughout the state and are open to anyone interested in learning more about, or helping to form, a state nonprofit public policy agenda that strengthens our sector.
