This year marks Common Good Vermont’s fourth annual Vermont Nonprofit Day, a unique opportunity for nonprofit organizations, activists and community leaders from across the state and to unify across sectors and raise awareness about the crucial role nonprofits play in supporting communities, strengthening our economy and making Vermont a better place to live. This year we’re pleased to have Mark Friedman, founder of the Results Based Accountability(TM) framework, in attendance.
Why attend? This event is a must for any organization that wants to boost their relationship with legislators, raise their profile and promote stronger, unified nonprofit sector in Vermont. This is also an opportunity to be on the forefront of working with Legislator’s who are learning about how to use RBA to inform their policy and funding decisions.
The Vermont Legislature is already heating up. Big issues include the the cost of health care, the budget and more! In the face of critical budget discussions and change in the State House, Vermont’s nonprofits can use this opportunity to demonstrate our value and visibility as force for good to our elected officials!
Participating in Vermont Nonprofit Day 2013 at the State House provides unique opportunities to interact with state government and to network with other nonprofits from across Vermont. Common Good Vermont will host activities from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., including:
