Moving Affinity Groups to Policy Work

April 22, 2015,
11:00am to 12:00pm
Based on interviews with members of regional association affinity groups, the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers has created a self-assessment tool and planning checklist to help affinity groups engaging in policy work determine how well they’re set up for success. During this webinar, Mark Sedway from The Giving Practice will review the tools and we'll hear from members of regional associations that are engaging affinity group policy work.
