Event description

Description

TOPIC FOR OCTOBER: Engagement Strategies - How do we best engage with our constituents, donors, volunteers, clients, and the community at large? What programs, processes and workflows are available to us to automate some of that engagement?

Alchemy is a community of nonprofit professionals who gather monthly to network with other nonprofit people; share resources & expertise; find a mentor/be a mentor; and make the world a better place (together)!

It's part non-profit networking group, part community of like-minded people, part nonprofit mentor connection, and part educational resource for your nonprofit questions. The format of the meeting will be as follows:

  • 6:00-6:30 pm: The first 30 minutes will be informal networking - introduce yourself to your nonprofit neighbors; 2-minute introductions of yourself, your organization, and one question (if you have one!) that you brought to the meeting, or why you're here (if you didn't bring a question).
  • 6:30-7:30 pm: Topic of the night. During this period of our meetings, members will share their expertise. Some of our upcoming topics include: Fundraising 101: Tips and Tricks; Social Media for Nonprofits; To Database or Not (and where?!); Developing Your Board; Writing Winning Grants; Taking Part in North Texas Giving Day; HR Compliance for Nonprofits; etc. We may have guest speakers from time to time!
  • After Meeting Drinks/Dinner Meetup: Loophole on the Square! (optional, of course!)

***Instructions for finding us: Go in the North Entrance of the old Denton Hospital Building at 525 Locust. When you arrive at the elevators, press 4. Our meeting space is to your RIGHT.

If you take the stairs, you'll go in the Denton Community health Clinic Doors, take the stairs on your right after walking in, and then take a right at the landing to find us. :)***
