Every month on the 4th Friday morning from 8:30 am – 9:45 am, Bozeman Area Community Foundation hosts an educational and collaborative gathering for all nonprofit leaders (including staff, volunteers and board members). All Nonprofit Café events are hosted at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture.
October // Nonprofit Networking Happy Hour
Conversation led by Maggie Sizemore // HRDC and Brittany Peters // Managing Director of Operations at Thrive
Where: 406 Brewing – 111 E Oak Street #1a
When: Wednesday, October 18th – 4:30 – 6 pm
How much: It’s free to nonprofit board, staff and volunteers! 406 Brewing is generously offering $.50 off your first beer during this event.
What you will learn: Join us for a different Nonprofit Cafe format this month! We will be gathering for a networking social because we believe each of your brings so much knowledge to our nonprofit community. This will be an opportunity to put a face with an email address, hear about one another’s critical work, and share some challenges and successes you are facing.
This program is free and open to our community because of our generous sponsor, First Security Bank! They believe that every nonprofit should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive together.
