Hello! If you are interested in learning more about network governance
models and strategies, we hope you'll join this free webinar next week on
March 27!l

*March 27 Free Webinar- Network Governance as an Empowerment Tool*

*Register at: *

As collaboration across organizational boundaries is becoming more and more
common, the need to explore how to “govern” or facilitate networks of
partners continues to grow. The rise of the Collective Impact model guided
many networks in strategies for utilizing a backbone organization as the
primary governing entity and many resources have emerged for how to
implement that structure. However, as that model has been implemented,
people are curious about what other types of methods for governing networks
might be possible, and are looking for alternatives to this top-down
approach to network governance. Specifically, people are looking for
governance models that will empower network members to engage in shared
accountability, shared facilitation, and shared voice. In this webinar,
Blythe Butler brings to life a conversation many of us are looking for, and
sets the stage for digging deeper into this “big topic” of networks in
today’s fast moving collaborative spaces.

We also still have a spots available for the *Network Leadership Training
Academy taking place April 15-17 in Denver, *a 3-day interactive workshop
for people engaged in the network way of working that are looking to
develop skills for building, managing, and evaluating more effective
cross-sector and community networks. Registration open until April 1:

Thank you! Malinda
