July 8: Nonprofit July

Calling our Non-profit members. We’re switching it up for the month of July. We want to spotlight our nonprofit members. We will have a series of short nonprofit member spotlights showcasing our community of those who pour their hearts into our city for the good of others. The first 15 nonprofits will get 3 minutes each to tell us why they do the work they do. So my nonprofit friends, submit your organization TODAY. Email NKBPA.info@gmail.com if you are interested in participating. YOU MUST BE AN NKBPA MEMBER.

Come learn about what they are doing and see if there is a place our members would like to get involved.

The meeting location is to be determined, but we will notify everyone as soon as we have that location.

Non-profits please arrive at 7:45am on JULY 8. The meeting will adjourn at 9am. SO NO GOING OVER YOUR 3-MINUTE TIME SLOT.

We are also looking for a breakfast sponsor this month. If you want to sponsor email Ethan Kirk ekirk@emeraldyouth.org.
