TVNPA Monthly Meetings are always open to the community at large at no cost.
Learn new skills, network with other nonprofits and businesses, discover answers to unanswered questions, ponder new paths for your organizations. All of this happens for attendees at each of our monthly program meetings. Our meetings are held the second Thursday of each month (with a few exceptions: be sure to check the calendar page).
Monthly programs are free, open to all, and feature knowledgeable experts on topics of import to nonprofits.
TVNPA is dedicated to keeping our members and guests safe while still providing compelling programming. Beginning in March 2020, we adjusted our monthly programs to be held via Zoom. Currently most of our meetings are “hybrid” – allowing an in person option as well as an opportunity to connect virtually. Please check meeting registration for details.
In-person programs are held at either at The Bankhead Theater or TVNPA’s CommonPoint Nonprofit Center in Livermore from 10am-noon. Location information is specified in the registration page for the event.
We thank the Bankhead Theater for its support of TVNPA programming!
Thank you to Sandia National Laboratories for sponsoring our 2023 Community Programs!
