ImpactV and the Benefits of Shared Services
Nonprofit leaders must divide their energy between pro­grammatic work and managing back-office demands, including admin­istra­tion, finance, human resources, information tech­nol­ogy, and compliance. You can’t outsource your mission, but you may be able to outsource some of the back-office functions that can divert attention from that mission.

Join us on Thursday, November 5, at 2:00 PM as we hear from ImpactV, an organiza­tion formed by like-minded nonprofit organizations to deliver strategic, professional back-office services to nonprofits. You’ll learn how shared services can help your organization reduce costs and risks, improve purchasing power and operating efficiency, and foster collaboration that leads to program innovation. Free for members; $25 for non-members. Register here.
