    September Membership Meeting



    Please join us for a Membership Meeting to learn about more about YNPN, participate in planning our future and to receive information on our upcoming Board of Directors election!

    We will be presenting a number of opportunities to participate with our organization:

    • Apply to join our Board of Directors in 2020 (Our Ten Year Anniversary!)
    • Help us develop our vision and strategic direction for the next three years
    • Learn about how YNPN So.NV operates and how our organization can help you, our members, lead our social sector for decades to come.

    We will be providing some drinks, snacks, and a welcoming atmosphere to help you unwind after your work day.

    PunchCode by TechImpact is gracious enough to offer its space to us for this event. 

    PunchCode is a coding bootcamp provided by Tech Impact. Tech Impact is a nonprofit whose mission is to empower communities and nonprofits to use technology to better serve our world. For more information on this organization, visit

  • Nerdy Nonprofit Networking - Media & Press Readiness

    Join us in September to get Media-Ready: 'Other duties as assigned' can get weird with NPO careers and you’ll probably be asked to do media at least once w/ just a moment's notice, so come learn how to be media-ready, how you can contribute to press-releases, or just to hang out and network.

    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?
