The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites members of nonprofit organizations to an annual Nonprofit Forum. The Progress through Partnership Forum provides an opportunity for nonprofit leaders to network with colleagues and to engage in discussions with NINDS staff.
Additionally, please join us at an associated free webinar on the importance of narrative in the nonprofit and research space: Thursday, July 16th from 3:00-4:00 pm ET.
The 2020 Forum included a session on June 29th, COVID Challenges in Nonprofit and Research Communities. The session moderators wanted to ensure the session was both relevant and effective for the community. The moderators tailored the session based on preliminary responses to this survey, and we welcome interested parties to continue to provide their input.
