This year, United Way of Broome County unveiled its new 3-year Community Commitment with a vision of Revitalizing Collaboration, Inspiring Giving, and Unifying Efforts and Resources. One method employed to accomplish this vision is done by hosting supportive services and sharing resources with community-based organizations to move us beyond. United Way of Broome County began this work last year at the 1st Annual Partnering for a Purpose, held on November 1, 2018, at the Holiday Inn Binghamton. What better way to boost our work with local community-based organizations than by hosting a day of networking and learning together? Breakout sessions at last year’s event focused on volunteer recruitment, grant-writing, social media & engagement, board development, and more.
This year, we’re back and better than ever! The 2nd Annual Partnering for a Purpose will be held on Friday, November 1, 2019, from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Binghamton. Our focus for 2019 is on increasing community collaboration and sharing best practices for organizational effectiveness.
We’re excited of the talent lined up to share their expertise, challenges, and successes with you!
