TVNPA Monthly Meetings are always open to the community at large at no cost.

Learn new skills, network with other non-profits 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.  Held the second Thursday of each month (with a few exceptions:  be sure to check the calendar page) at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore (2400 First St., Livermore, CA, 94550) from 10am to noon, the monthly program features knowledgeable experts on topics of import to non-profits.

All programs are free and open to all (with the exception of the Forum in Spring of 2019).  Our free monthly programs are made possible by the generosity of our program sponsor the Bankhead Theater, funding from TVNPA memberships, and raffles (with wonderful prizes) held at each program.
