In the struggle to meet growing needs with diminishing funds, nonprofit leaders and association board members are increasingly exploring strategic alliances and mergers with other groups.

Could an alliance help your organization improve services, increase funding, acquire new program expertise or expand its reach?  Unfortunately, the answers rarely come without the costs of consulting attorneys, accountants and HR and association experts.

Now there’s an webinar that cuts these costs for you.  Join us to explore the risks and rewards of forging your own alliances.
