Wednesday, May 19, 2021
9:00 AM - 1:30 PM (EDT)
Zoom - Register to get the link!
Category: Learning Together

As with any membership organization, Together SC's bylaws require an annual meeting of the members which we typically hold during the Nonprofit Summit.

As the Summit was cancelled this year, Together SC will host its 2021 Annual Membership Meeting virtually!!! 

This year's Report to the Membership, led by your Together SC board chair, Monroe Free, and members of the Together SC Board of Directors, will include a preview of offerings coming in July and plans for ensuring the sustainability of Together SC. 

And, while we're at it, why not offer free learning and networking opportunities - just for our members? 

Led by three dynamic speakers, these free sessions will tackle navigating the Post-Covid environment.

We will close the morning out with a BYO Lunch with the peer group of your choice in ZOOM breakouts!

Please register and plan on joining us Wednesday, May 19, 2021 from the comfort of where ever you are working these days.

Keep scrolling to learn more and see the agenda.
