NELEN To Convene A Deep Dive for Fall 2013 Gathering

The NELEN Fall Gathering Organizing Committee is pleased to announce an exciting new format and opportunity for our Fall Gathering, taking place in Dover, NH on Thursday, September 26th.

In partnership with the American Independent Business Alliance, NELEN will be offering an opportunity for networks to “go deep” to take the next step in growth and development for their organization.

As opposed to previous gatherings, where we have convened speakers and had workshops to discuss our organizations, our intention this time is to develop specific plans for your organizations to take back home that will help your network move to the next level.

In order to ensure commitment from attendees, we will be asking that all participants bring at least one board member and their staff member for the full day (two board members if no staff member is in place)
