Here at NFP Connect we offer support, connection and education through our monthly networking breakfast, for those working for and with local charities and not-for-profits.
Who is the “NFP Connect Breakfast” for? Predominantly for not-for-profit employees, owners, leaders and anyone related to the field or interested in the monthly topic.
Why attend? NFP Connect is having a profound effect in the not-for-profit sector in the Hunter Region as it unites organisations to network, support each other and benefit from training tailored to the industry’s unique troubles.
The monthly breakfasts are a great way to start your morning with a hot breakfast and opportunity to share and network with others in the sector and get some tips and tricks to help you in your role.
