Breakout Session: California’s Regional Associations: A New Strategic Partnership
Tuesday, July 29, 10-11:45 am
Presenters: Chris Essel, Southern California Grantmakers; David Greco, Northern California Grantmakers; and Nancy Jamison, San Diego Grantmakers
They say finding the right relationship is all about timing. While the three California regional associations - Northern California Grantmakers (NCG), San Diego Grantmakers (SDG), and Southern California Grantmakers (SCG) - have partnered together on a number of projects over the years, now is the time to take their relationships to the next level. Each of the three RAs is undergoing a strategic journey involving changes in their boards, staffs, memberships, relationships to stakeholders, and/or program mixes. This is the logical time to consider how working together can increase individual and collective effectiveness, impact, and efficiency.
And while the three RAs represent the interests of grantmakers in three quite distinct geographic areas, there are numerous commonalities that tie them together. It is clear that by working together, all three organizations will be smarter and more effective in all areas of work, including public policy, program development, membership engagement, and information technology.
Come hear how the leaders of NCG, SDG and SCG envision the new partnership and why they are all on board now. And come prepared to share your ideas and efforts to partner with other regional associations.
