Part 2 of the Tamworth Nonprofits Summit coming up this Saturday

Several representatives of ACT attended Part 1 of the Tamworth Nonprofits Summit, sponsored by the Tamworth Foundation, on October 17. Forty or more representatives of over half of Tamworth's 50 or so nonprofits met at the Community School in South Tamworth for the summit, facilitated by David Chase of DRC Consulting. David Chase, Ellen Koenig from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and Mary Ellen Jackson from the NH Center for Nonprofits spoke on the general climate for nonprofits in New Hampshire today. George Cleveland, David Little, Michelle Cleveland, John Cleveland, Tracey Little and Lianne Prentice spoke about conditions particular to Tamworth and this region, and presented an overview of directions local nonprofits could take to ensure survival and even to thrive. Part 2, on Saturday, November 7, offers boards and administrators some facilitated work time to address issues particular to individual organizations, and to look at how by sharing strengths local organizations can support each other and by extension the communities they serve.
