Non-Profit CEO Roundtable
The Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Holleran Center for Community Engagement at Alvernia University are partners in the 2011 Non-Profit CEO Roundtable for Executive Directors and Presidents in Greater Reading. All area non-profits are invited to participate in the forum, which consists of a series of four interactive and supportive peer-to-peer discussions.
The Non-Profit Roundtable is based on a successful model that the Chamber of Commerce currently offers for-profit executives; one that is conducive to brainstorming, sharing ideas, solving problems and networking. It centers on topics and needs as determined by the group related to the unique challenges and issues non-profit executives face every day.
Non-profit executives from all areas are welcome. If you want to build relationship with other non-profit executives and are seeking more opportunities to share ideas, challenges, successes and solutions with non-profits, the Non-Profit Roundtable is a worthwhile investment.
