How MANP Connects Started

Our MANP Connects series launched in April 2020 at the start of the pandemic to help our network feel connected and supported, share information and resources, and get inspired. Since then we have hosted more than 50 virtual coffee chats featuring 100+ guest speakers representing the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, state and federal government, and the business community.
