NVI Offers Scholarships for Local Partners to Attend Collective Impact Conference in LA

As of November 1, 2020, National Veterans Intermediary (NVI) is called the Local Partner Network. Older content may reference our original name.

We are thrilled to share that on October 16-18, 2018, the Collective Impact Forum and the Tamarack Institute will host a Champions for Change Learning Forum in Los Angeles, CA. This event is designed for leaders of backbone teams from collective impact initiatives to provide professional development and share new insight on the work of backbones from the field. For the many collaboratives working hard on developing their organizations, this is a great opportunity to receive expert support and strengthen your capacity to collaborate for impact.

To share this incredible learning experience with our local partners, NVI is providing scholarships to attend the conference! For eligible local partners, NVI will cover recipients’ full registration fees (a $750 value) and issue a $250 travel stipend. While we can only sponsor one representative from each local partner community, collaboratives are welcome to register other attendees separately. We want to connect with our communities and create opportunities for our communities to network. That’s why NVI will also be hosting an informal gathering for partners attending the conference on October 17th.

You can learn more about the conference agenda and workshops here. Conference topics will include:

  • Clarifying the roles and leadership characteristics of the backbone organization
  • Incorporating an equity lens in your collective impact work
  • Engaging the community in your initiative
  • Fostering collaboration with funders, partners, and stakeholders
  • Developing and learning from shared measurement
  • Evaluating collective impact
  • Sustaining a collective impact initiative over the long term

Have you been thinking about attending? Event organizers believe the event will sell out soon, so act fast! NVI local partners can still contact us to request a scholarship.

Are you attending? We look forward to seeing in California in October!
