Navigating the nonprofit field can be overwhelming when you’re taking your first few steps into the industry. Most people who do crack that nut by learning from their peers and by starting from the bottom and working their way up, accruing experience and learning from their mistakes. However, if you’re taking part in a nonprofit in a small town, or creating a new one from scratch, this support system doesn’t exist or is hard to find. How do you go about finding out about “this” or “that?” You can set your goal of heading a nonprofit aside and join an existing one that has already achieved success; or sometimes even that isn’t an option.
But in the golden age of communication, the Internet provides a treasure trove of information that battles well in the war on ignorance. This is where #Nonprofiting comes to the rescue!
Looking for a way to connect with other nonprofit workers in the field for advice and a means for running your organization more efficiently? Check out the #nonprofiting group here on Facebook. It’s a group for providing peer advice to those who operate nonprofit organizations. People are already starting conversations, and if you have a question—any question, really—then don’t be afraid to ask. You have your friends here at Aplos, or other members of the group, to answer any and all questions, big and small. See you there!
