As State and County governments are forced to make cuts in staffing and services, our citizens and our public officials are turning increasingly to non-profit organizations to fill the gap. To do so efficiently and effectively, government and the non-profit sector must communicate and collaborate as much as possible. However, in NY State and Dutchess County, there is little or no mechanism for this two-way dialog and cooperation. This presentation will present one possible model to bring government and the non-profits together to benefit our common constituency.
Together, we are going to tackle some important issues facing our sector and hopefully gain some important insight as to how we can encourage our State and Local leaders to make a strong statement about the nonprofit sector as they have in Connecticut.
