The group had a robust discussion during our June meeting of the Nonprofit Revitalization Act, the Governor's Executive Compensation Order and the NYS Grants Portal. Doug Sauer, NYCON's CEO, and staff will be creating a summary of the legislation and how it will affect small to medium sized nonprofits (who make up the bulk of the Executives around the table.) and will send it to the group and all NYCON members.
The Affordable Care Act was discussed briefly and it was decided that this could be the topic for the group's August meeting.
There was also a mention of other leadership groups in the Capital Region, namely the United Way and the Tech Valley Nonprofits group (a joint initiative supported by the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber and the Chamber of Schenectady County) and how we should be collaborating or consolidating meetings. Doug Sauer has already reached out to the United Way and is waiting to hear back. He also has a meeting schedule with the Albany Chamber this week (6/24) and he will update us on any new developments on July 19th.
