Happy Monday, friends!
Here at YNPN LA, we know most folks can't attend most of our events due to timing, traffic, and our crazy lives. To create more opportunities for folks to plug into our network, we're starting a new initiative -- Nonprofit Neighborhood Hangouts!
We want YOU to hold a casual gathering in your neighborhood (at your favorite coffee shop, bar, park, etc.) where fellow nonprofiteers can make connections, build community, and not have to drive across town to do it! Sunday brunch, Tuesday happy hour, Thursday lunch hangout, or any combination thereof -- the options are limitless. We'll even help you with planning and promotion via our official platforms (Facebook, email, etc.). Interested? Let us know!
Keep reading for more opportunities to get involved this month, including our Mixer with YNPN OC on Aug 24 and our Proactive Management Workshop on Aug 30.

- Join one committee and support its goals (2-3 hrs/wk)
- One committee meeting per month (in-person or virtual) (~2 hrs/mo)
- Most mixers throughout the year (3 hrs/mo)
