Governance Matters staff served on the steering committee for this year’s Ahead of the Curve symposium, a toolbox and inspiration for looking at opportunities and threats and how this impacts planning in an uncertain world. The Ahead of the Curve Collaborative looks to strengthen the nonprofit sector through the merits of partnership. As like-minded capacity builders, it’s goal is to increase collaboration and communication across purpose-driven social ventures in order to help each other overcome everyday obstacles and achieve long standing goals. The event took place on Wednesday October 18th at UJA Federation of New York and was funded by JP Morgan Chase.
The program consisted of a lively panel on how scenario planning can influence our understanding of risk and opportunity across funding, fundraising and advocacy work. That was followed by a small group learning exercise. Stay up to date on all of the Ahead of the Curve updates by visiting their website www.aheadofthecurve.nyc
