    Nerdy Nonprofit Networking - Community Outreach & Engagement

    Nerdy_Nonprofit_Network_-_EM.png

     

    Booths at fairs, street-teams at First Friday... Having creative ways of going into communities to build support for a cause is invaluable to any growing nonprofit professional! Come to learn or just to hang, but either way we hope to see you there!

    We plan to nerd out in the outside area, which is open to all ages. In the case that we move inside to the bar, the venue is restricted to ages 21+.

    What is Nerdy Nonprofit Networking?

    If you're a nonprofit employee in Nevada that enjoys learning, drinks, & meeting others from our field who 'get it'... welcome! Nerdy Nonprofit Networking of Nevada hosts a (mostly) monthly mixer that also serves as a relaxed learning environment. Join the group to stay up to date on mixer dates, locations, topics, and guest-host (our topical 'experts').

    Each mixer has a learning theme led by an experienced professional. You can attend because you have questions about the theme, but you can also just show up to meet other nonprofit professionals and talk about anything else:

    Maybe just talk about what's going on at work! Grant deadlines dragging you down? Think you're suffering from compassion fatigue but don't want to talk with the coworkers about it just yet? Perhaps you want advice about with a particularly hard-to-manage volunteer on a night when the learning theme is 'How to Ask For Donations With Confidence'.... Whatever it is, come and benefit from sympathetic ears of other nonprofit professionals after work, and just maybe you'll also get a little professional development accomplished while you're at it!

    Our recurring tongue-in-cheek price of admission fee is:

    • Bring one person who works in the social sector who has never been to one of the mixers before, or
    • Show up with one piece of knowledge or advice to share. That piece of knowledge is written down on a piece of paper and given to the host of the evening when you arrive, and will be read along with the night’s 3-minute ‘briefing on the topic’, or
    • Show up with one industry related question, or
    • Do some combination of the above three options because why the heck not?

    Access to Experts - Building Leaders in the Public Sector

    As mass retirement of nonprofit executive directors and senior management in the Las Vegas Valley occurs in the next 5-10 years, there will be great opportunity to fill those roles. Learn what young emerging leaders should be doing to prepare to take on those roles and what the community at large can do to advocate for home grown leadership.

    Our featured speaker Rae Lathrop, is no stranger to the history of Southern Nevada's nonprofit community. Throughout her career, Rae has maintained an active community role by serving on multiple nonprofit boards and committees, which includes being a founding board member of the Southern Nevada Chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network, Director for ImpactNV, Director for the Nevada Housing Coalition, and member of the Board of Ordained Ministry for the Desert Southwest Conference of the United Methodist Church.

    Interviewing Rae is former YNPN Southern Nevada Co-Chair, Patricia Haddad. A self-proclaimed Las Vegas native, Patricia cares deeply about how public education and workforce development impact the future success of the Valley. She manages community impact initiatives for Opportunity 180 where she helps create systems to increase access to high quality public school for all kids. She is involved with her neighborhood association in Downtown Las Vegas. Patricia has a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a Master’s degree in Special Education of Children with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.

    Nerdy Nonprofit Networking - Grants

    Grantwriters can be the deadline driven unsung heroes of organizations, but often times can be misunderstood as the people who frequently come to you with spending and report drafting requests. Writing grants is a great skill to have, but this isn't grantwriting 101. Join Nerdy Nonprofit Networking this August as we bring everyone to the table to develop a better understanding between the grantwriters and the team members they're getting funding for.

    We plan to nerd out in the outside area, which is open to all ages. In the case that we move inside to the bar, the venue is restricted to ages 21+.
