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. Programs are made possible by the generosity of our program sponsor The Bankhead Theater, funding from TVNPA memberships, individual donors, and raffles – with wonderful prizes (in-person meetings only).
TVNPA is dedicated to keeping our members and guests safe during the pandemic while still providing compelling programming. Beginning in March 2020, we adjusted our monthly programs to be held via Zoom. We hope to resume in-person meetings as soon as safely possible.
In-person programs are held at The Bankhead Theater in Livermore from 10am-noon. The theater is located at 2400 First Street, Livermore, CA 94550
