Community Resources for COVID-19

The health of our community is our number one priority. We hope you are staying safe out there. But we also understand that there is increased anxiety right now around illness and possible symptoms (it is allergy season, after all). So, what do you do if you think you’re sick and/or been exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19)?  We’ve compiled a handy cheat sheet for just such a circumstance. We hope you won’t have to use it, but just in case, here are some resources we’ve curated from the CDC and local health departments. Continue reading

Here’s your megaphone: the membership survey is now open!

In the last year, the YNPNdc board and volunteers have been working to implement our new strategic plan and fully realize our commitment to diversity and inclusion. One of our major goals is to offer programming and events that are meaningful and reflective of our membership. Now, we’re asking for your feedback in our membership survey! It’s critical for us to hear your experience with YNPNdc over the past year, get input on where we can improve, and better understand your needs. Your voice will inform the programming and events that we create just for you. Ready to share your thoughts? Grab your soapbox here. Do you need more convincing? Here are a few more  reasons why you should take the YNPNdc membership survey: Help us build a stronger network! YNPNdc is an organization run by volunteers in the Greater DC nonprofit community - meaning we’re members, just like you. As we continue to develop programming and expand our network, we are looking to our diverse, inclusive community to help shape our collective future. Your survey responses highlight the racial, geographic, cultural, and socioeconomic diversity of our membership and provide insight into the needs of our membership. Use your voice to help us create more value. The survey will provide critical information about key successes and opportunities for improvement in our resources and offerings. Your input can help us create more value for you - which is our ultimate goal! Fill up your calendar with YNPNdc events. Each month, YNPNdc offers two regular events - our signature monthly program, Inner Circles, and a Networking Happy Hour. While these events are very popular - we think we can do more! What events and programs are you interested in? Tell us in the survey. You could win a gift card. Need we say more?
