TNB Roundtable: Collaboration - What’s in it for Your Nonprofit?

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The Massachusetts Nonprofit Network and Tech Networks of Boston invite you to participate in the latest session in a series of Roundtables about collaboration among nonprofit organizations.

The Boston Foundation has generously offered the use of a meeting room, and Tom McLaughlin has just as generously stepped up to lead us in a morning of discussion and peer learning about nonprofit collaboration.

Here's what Tom says about this Roundtable session:

There is growing talk about collaboration in the nonprofit sector, but  toward what end?  What does it mean to collaborate?  Is collaboration just the latest buzzword or can it be meaningful to your organization?   

We designed this session in order to facilitate answers to these questions for all participants.  This will be a hands-on workshop in which participants can examine a possible non-merger collaboration with a group of colleagues.  Using simple data about a large group of nonprofits that we will supply, each group will attempt to identify potential savings, then brainstorm collaborative approaches to achieving these savings.     

Using the results of all the groups, we will facilitate a discussion about best collaboration practices that could lead to savings.  It is possible that one or more actual collaborations could emerge from this session. 

Here's a bit about Tom:

Tom McLaughlin is on the faculty at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University where he teaches financial management and strategic management to mission-based management MBA and international development students.   He is a contributing editor for the Nonprofit Times, for which he writes a monthly column. 

Tom formed McLaughlin & Associates in 2011 after nearly two decades as a nonprofit consulting specialist with two national accounting and consulting firms.  Tom has over 35 years of nonprofit experience as a nonprofit manager, trade association executive, and management consultant.  He has assisted more than 200 nonprofit organizations in forming collaborative relationships, and is the author of "Nonprofit Mergers and Alliances: A Strategic Planning Guide," "Streetsmart Financial Basics for Nonprofit Managers," and "Nonprofit Strategic Positioning."

Please note that this Roundtable session will not be a sales pitch for any product or service.  It will be an opportunity for nonprofit professionals to learn from and along with their peers in other organizations.

Participation in this Roundtable is free of charge to nonprofit professionals.  However, you will need an advance reservation in order to attend.  To begin the registration process, just click on the YES button.

A day which will live in infamy.

Or, maybe live in famy? I'm not really sure.

Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon

On August 9, TWC and StartOut are bringing their members together for the first ever TWC Hackathon. What's that? A hackathon is an event where people get together to collaborate to solve a problem. In our case, the problem is how to introduce TWC to thousands of new members as we expand across the country.

Keep reading to find out more and join a team. Whether you're a start-up whiz or just passionate about TWC's mission, we want to hear your ideas.

The challenge:
Design the best 30-day campaign to creatively reach 30,000 new members in our soon-to-be-launched cities.  TWC is opening three new cities in October 2014. We want to add 10 thousand members in each city between September 1 and September 30. We think the best way to find out about TWC is through current members, so we’re asking our members to come together to compete for prizes by designing campaigns that we can launch across three new cities to introduce thousands of people to TWC.

The plan:
On August 9, The Welcoming Committee and StartOut host “Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon,” which is bringing together LGBTQs, start-up geeks, and branding gurus to generate creative launch-marketing campaigns that will help us take The Welcoming Committee across the country. 

The day will begin with the announcement of the three cities we’re opening in. To develop their campaigns, teams of TWC members will brainstorm ideas with help from our staff, professional brand strategists, graphic designers, and presentation experts. Finally, they'll present their campaigns to a panel of judges.

“Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon” is co-hosted by StartOut. Space graciously provided by IdeaPaint.

The perks:

  • Be the first to find out our next three cities and learn more about TWC's expansion plans
  • Meet with and learn from marketing professionals
  • Prizes for the winning team
  • Surprises (of course) for everyone

The schedule:

  • 11 am: Check in
  • 11:30: Presentation
  • 12 pm: Teams meet
  • 12:30: Brainstorming begins
  • 1:30: Lunch break!

Rehnoma: Respect, Empowerment, Honesty, Networking, OPEN, Mentoring, and Ambition – all tools that will enable us to be successful community leaders. We bring together strong, dynamic, and versatile female leaders from various industries – academia, healthcare, finance, technology, and entrepreneurship -- to unpack the crucial questions: What is leadership? What does it take to be a good leader? What are the struggles, challenges, and triumphs that come with being a leader? Gender limitations are still very much a limitation in corporate America -- what are the issues these constructs pose and how can we work to pave the road ahead for balance in the work place? Through thoughtful dialogue, inspiring lectures, and interactive workshops, we hope to fuel meaningful discussion and prepare future leaders for tomorrow’s professional landscape.

Rehnoma is open to all mid- and young professionals, both men and women.  Come and take part in a full day of discussion and reflection with our esteemed women leaders, hone your leadership skills, and mingle with other aspiring entrepreneurs and ambitious minds.  Our speakers, panelists, and workshop facilitators hail from a range of backgrounds - from biotechnology and medicine to economic litigation, marketing, and fine cooking - but they are all strong and successful leaders, each with a unique journey and rich variety of perspective and experience.  Join us as we explore topics of networking, mentorship, the phases of leadership, and the theme of the glass ceiling as we further explore what makes a leader in today's workplace.

Mikaela Davis / Luke Niccoli
Mikaela Davis is an indie harpist and singer-songwriter from Rochester, New York, who is known for her amazing YouTube covers of Sufjan Stevens' "Casimir Pulaski Day," which has received over 115,000 hits, and her cover of Elliott Smith's "Twilight," which has received close to 40,000 hits. Davis tours solo or as a trio with Alex Coté on drums and percussion and Cian McCarthy on guitar and sitar. To date, she has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with indie rock artists My Brightest Diamond, Jukebox the Ghost, Filligar, and Indians, and was recently invited to perform at the 2013 Lilac Festival. In 2012, Davis recorded, mixed, and mastered her self-titled debut album at Red Booth Recordings with owner and audio engineer Brian Moore, who describes her as "harp and voice with an eclectic instrument mix whipped into a melancholy lo-fi sound; an intricate balance of fluttering vocal folds and fingers on strings that blend effortlessly." Recently, Davis released the single, "Feels Like Forever," in support of her summer touring and will be returning to the studio this fall to work on a new EP with Brian Moore.
