Princeton Community Works: Networking and Training Night for Volunteers and Non-Profit Leaders Jan. 28


Princeton Community Works, an annual event designed to connect non-profit board members, staff members, and volunteers, is back for its 16th year. The annual gathering at the Frist Center at Princeton University attracts hundreds of people from the Mercer County area and beyond. The conference is a great opportunity to network and learn new skills, and at $35 it’s the best training bargain around.

Participants can choose from among 21 workshops covering topics ranging from social media for non-profits, and how to keep volunteers and staff, to raising money in the difficult economic environment.

The event is organized annually by a group of community volunteers, and Princeton University donates the space. The deadline to register online is this Friday.

The registration fee includes a boxed supper, snacks, two workshops and all workshop-related materials. Visit www.princetoncommunityworks.org to read more about the workshop offerings, get directions and register.

In the video above created by Adam Bierman, Princeton Community Works founder Marge Smith talks about the conference. Smith, a former executive director of the Princeton YWCA, teaches non-profit management at Mercer County Community College and serves on numerous non-profit boards.
