Nonprofits and City Government Working Together This free workshop will offer practical strategies for nonprofits interacting with local elected officials and their staffs, and with local government agencies such as LA Department of Cultural Affairs, LA Library and LA Department of Parks and Recreation.  Whether identifying resources, problem solving or creating collaborations, these relationships are important to San Fernando Valley nonprofits.  The workshop will be held on Thursday April 11, 2019 from 9-11 am at Fire Station 89 in North Hollywood.  It is hosted by the Office of LA City Councilperson Paul Krekorian (CD2), and co-hosted by CSUN Valley Nonprofit Resources. Speakers will include the Councilperson and representatives from the three city agencies. For more information and to register, please contact Morgan Sutton, CD2, via email or call 818/755-7676.  Due to space limitations, each nonprofit should send only one representative.

Health and Human Service Nonprofit Executive Directors Roundtable brings together health and human service nonprofit CEOs in the San Fernando Valley for informal discussion of important topics and peer-to-peer networking, as well as guest speakers. The next meeting will be on Thursday, April 18, 2019, 4-6 pm. As before, we’ll have an agenda split between going around the table for updates and requests for information or problem-solving, followed by a lightly-facilitated discussion. The discussion topic for the April 18 meeting will be focused on how to enhance staff productivity and staff self-care. The Roundtable is coordinated by VNR, Valley Care Community Consortium and The Children's Burn Foundation, which will host the meeting in its conference room and provide refreshments. If you are interested in attending this free event,please contact VNR Project Coordinator Ashley Wright via email or call 818/677-2774.
