Peer Learning Networks

We Are Stronger Together. 

Connect.

Build relationships with your peers. Find common ground.

Share Knowledge.

Access information and dialogue to take your impact to the next level.

Build Your Network.

Grow your connections and establish long-term success.

As the nonprofit sector constantly evolves, so does the leadership savvy that organizations need from their staff. In addition, nonprofit professionals juggling busy schedules and complex responsibilities can feel disconnected from each other. CVNL understands the importance of a consistent forum where nonprofit professionals can connect to exchange best practices and resources. Through CVNL’s Peer Learning Networks, nonprofit leaders convene virtually to share information, dialogue, and collegial support to help take their impact to the next level.

Find Your Network.

Peer Learning Networks are convened and facilitated virtually by CVNL staff members and provide a supportive network of like-minded peers for nonprofit professionals. The groups host guest speakers, facilitated conversations, networking,
and other learning opportunities.

They include networks for professionals
in the following fields:

Finance & HR

This Network is open to any and all types of financial and human resource managers from nonprofits throughout our community. Come prepared to share the challenges you’re facing — you’ll have the opportunity to work with your peers to create solutions. We encourage existing and prospective Network members to sign up for the 16th Annual Hood & Strong University, which will replace our August session, on 8/6, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm (free).

Fundraising

Join us in July as we share tips, best practices, resources, and provide support specifically for fundraisers in the North Bay region. Our goal is to inspire you and help you inspire others. We invite all fellow fundraisers to participate in this new online opportunity. Based on participation and feedback at our first gathering, we will determine future subject areas for discussion and guest speakers for the peer learning network.
