Commissioner Harvey Addresses Nonprofits at MANP Nonprofit Capitol Exchange
On January 22nd, Commissioner Harvey spoke to an audience of nonprofit leaders and took questions. The event, part of a new series, was co-sponsored by the Maine Association of Nonprofits and Preti Flaherty.
The turnout was great for a 7:30 am event and the conversation was thoughtful, respectful and provided some ideas for strengthening the partnership between state government and the nonprofit community.
MANP Board President, Tom Davis, set the scene when he noted that we all in the room have the same objective and that is to provide quality services to Maine people. Commissioner Harvey echoed those sentiments noting at the end of her remarks that she is working hard to leave the department in a better place than she found it and believes that DHHS has made a lot of progress during her tenure.
Commissioner Harvey has provided us with a slide show and requests that nonprofit leaders study it, share it with their spheres of influence. Constructive feedback will be welcomed.
