First Program a Success & Second Event on the Way!

15 people participated in WNY Executive Directors Network's first program meeting on June 4th. The event took place at the Buffalo Museum of Science and featured speaker Neil Melbroad on fund development. Neil worked in the local nonprofit community for years and retired just a couple of weeks after speaking. The first program was a great opportunity for networking and professional development. We're already looking forward to our next program set for Wednesday, September 3rd. The Deputy Mayor will be talking about her experiences with nonprofits and some of the issues that the administration sees coming up. Senator Cathy Young will also be present to talk about Upstate Now legislation. You can register for the event by clicking here.
