“SMALL BUT MIGHTY, ROUND 2" WEB CHAT

COST: FREE FOR MEMBERS, $25 FOR NONMEMBERS, PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED

Based on the success of last year's web chat, PLA is bringing back this online roundtable that centers on unique challenges facing small public land nonprofits. We'll continue the conversation from last year and tackle topics such as: communicating with your agency partner, forging creative partnerships, recruiting new members, finding volunteers and more.

Here’s what one participant had to say about last year’s event:

“I have two pages of notes with great ideas as I go forward. In addition, I now have some new contacts with individuals from organization similar to my own. It really helps to know that I am not alone in my struggle.”

– Amy Cauthon, Executive Director, Friends of Yaquina Lighthouses
