I’ve been on the road all summer and while it’s made the summer fly by and end too quickly, I’ve been blessed to make some wonderful memories over the past few months. I hope you also had an opportunity to rest and relax (or not) with a vacation this summer or have one planned soon! My unsolicited advice: do not travel to Disney World in early August. 🙂
I’m packing my bags again because KNN is hitting the road! Our first stop is in Morehead on Thursday and in total, we’ll visit with eleven communities across the Commonwealth. If you haven’t yet registered for one of our upcoming More Than Charity Town Hall Meetings, please take a minute and do so now! Not only because I’d like to see you, but because your nonprofit colleagues need you to join with us for important discussions about our sector.
If you haven’t heard yet: Kentucky’s nonprofit sector is Kentucky’s third largest industry – following government and retail. Not only do we as nonprofit leaders need to know facts about the importance of our sector, but our community leaders and decision-makers need to understand these as well. At our town hall meetings, we’ll be strategizing about how we can better communicate the work of our own nonprofit organizations and our overall sector, including how we can better communicate our importance as providers, employers and major contributors to the economy.
More unsolicited advice: you need this information, decision-makers need this information and we need you to engage with us to get the word out, so please register today and plan to join us.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
P.S. Please help us spread the word as we travel across Kentucky by utilizing social media with the hashtag #morethancharitytour.
