Compare intelligence work to volunteer management (not counting all those spy movie clichés). Intelligence sounds so left-brained, so centered on data and analysis while volunteer management is people-oriented and relationship-driven. And while our work may require confidentiality, it’s rarely top secret.
Recently, Serving Together, a program of Mental Health Association that serves the Washington, DC region, led a dynamic discussion on services to veterans with the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce (LCCC) Nonprofit Initiative.
At times I feel like my own small business owner. Out there pounding the pavement, attending numerous chamber events as well as other networking events and meetings.
Many businesses shy away from working with non-profit groups. Personally, I just can’t figure out why. Working with Non-profits has boosted my business more than advertising.
