2018 YNPN National Sustainability Update

2018 YNPN National Sustainability Update

Purpose of Call: To share with the Network information concerning changes in YNPN National's financial position and how it may potentially affect the role / work of YNPN National.

Agenda / Notes:
Action Items: 
Sign up for one of the two think tanks tasked with coming up with proposals that chapters and YNPN National will consider as possible changes in practice and priority moving forward.
  • Financial Sustainability Think Tank - This group will evaluate and strategize for the financial sustainability of the network with a particular emphasis on how we can secure resources outside of grant funding. Topics will include non-traditional sources of revenue and earned income, evaluating the network investment fee, National Conference structure & pricing, and individual giving from members.
    If interested in participating in this think tank, reach out to Jeff Key at jeffrey.key@ynpn.org
  • Prioritizing the Work of YNPN National Think Tank - This Think Tank will examine the operational sustainability of YNPN National and consider how to prioritize the work of the network if we are not able to significantly improve our financial situation. Essentially, this Think Tank will be considering what happens if YNPN National is not able to raise funds for additional staff or to maintain the current staff.
