Description

Join us for 2019’s first All Member Meeting!

We are ready to kick off 2019 with an exciting agenda and the opportunity to engage with Listen for Good for MFSA Members. As you all may recall, in December we reached out to provide information and a request in preparation for February’s meeting.

Joining us on the 8th will be a representative from Listen For Good as well as local Listen for Good participants sharing their experience and insight.

For those who were able to attend November’s All Member meeting, you learned about Listen for Good (L4G), an initiative of the Fund for Shared Insight. Listen for Good applies the same survey science and framework used in the private sector to non-profits. With a focus on “listening to the people we seek to help, especially those whose voices are least heard” the Listen for Good survey tool allows organizations like our members to get meaningful, clear and consistent feedback from those we serve.

Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust has been collaborating with Listen for Good and a cohort of local non-profits to implement the Listen for Good model. Participants have shared not only the ease of engaging with the tool, but also the incredible benefits they are already beginning to see.

The Alliance now has an opportunity to bring Listen for Good’s model and resources to our member organizations and we are excited to have Listen for Good join our February 8, 2019 All Member meeting!

And while we are always excited to have you there, no work required, this meeting will be a bit different in that we will be asking you to do some thinking and exploring within your organizations between now and February 8th.

While the Trust has no expectation or requirement that any member participate, it is important they have an understanding in February of the number of MFSA organizations who are committed to working with Listen for Good so that Trust staff can plan and budget accordingly. To that end, we ask that you begin discussing within your organizations if this is something you would be interested in being a part of and identifying who needs to be included in this decision. If, as you learn more about Listen for Good (please visit https://www.fundforsharedinsight.org/listen-for-good/), you discover you have questions, please contact Erin Goodman, Program Officer at the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, at egoodman@pipertrust.org.

On the 8th, in addition to Listen for Good, we are pleased to welcome back David Lujan from The Arizona Center for Economic Progress with a preview of the 2019 legislative session as well as updates on work occurring around the Standards.

Please plan on joining us!
