Intro to Peer Growth Groups

Intro to Peer Growth Groups

with Katie Appold, MPA and Joel Kessel

January 5 | 10:00-11:00 AM CT

Ever have decisions you can’t bring to your board or team to process? Do you ever want to network with peers outside your town or area of service? We thought so. You’re not alone. Peer groups are cohorts built around a common role or objective that meet regularly and confidentially. Nonprofit Hub’s initial group offerings are designed to help executives and those new to the nonprofit sector – two groups we recognize are often in need of encouragement and trusted allies.

This intro webinar will give an overview of the new Peer Growth Groups program of Nonprofit Hub by group moderators Joel Kessel and Katie Appold. If you’re interested in joining a group, this is an opportunity to learn more and ask questions.
