Peer Networking and Learning Groups
Peer Networking and Learning Groups started as a way for nonprofit staff to meet and discuss ideas, share tips, trends and best practices. These informal groups are peed-led and meeting topics are determined by the group. Each meets three times a year to share practical information and is a great opportunity to meet other nonprofit staff involved in similar work while exploring concerns and discussing effective solutions. The groups are free and you can attend as many meetings as you want.
Peer Philanthropy Network. This group is designed for fund raising and development professionals from a wide range of nonprofits. The group meets three times per year at The Winston-Salem Foundation building in the Burress Family Center for Philanthropy. Each meeting features a peer-facilitated conversation around an announced topic.
Peer Financial Network. Similar to the Peer Philanthropy Network, this group is for professionals serving as CFOs or who work in a financial position within their nonprofits. The group meets three times per year at different nonprofits in the community.
Piedmont Regional Association for Volunteer Administration (PRAVA.) PRAVA is peer-led, all-volunteer group of nonprofit professionals who work primarily with volunteers. This local group meets monthly and seeks to provide support and networking opportunities for volunteer administrators, while promoting and fostering volunteer relationships within the community.
