Nonprofits host spring events for community volunteers | #cybersecurity | #conferences


Here’s a round robin look at upcoming events, conferences, and other resources for the community and local nonprofit leaders.

Tallahassee’s favorite spring events have returned with a flourish. As a community we can be proud of these beloved, award-winning events spearheaded by local nonprofits that contribute to economic development, create a sense of place, and raise money to meet community needs.

Hundreds gathered at Cascades park to see country music artist Jamey Johnson perform as the 8th Annual Word of South literary-music festival began Friday, April 8, 2022.

Building Better Boards: May 10

If you are serving on a nonprofit board, I urge you to attend Leadership Tallahassee’s Building Better Boards on Tuesday, May 10, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. at TCC’s Workforce Development building. This year’s annual training conference is sponsored by Big Bend Cares and designed for veteran and novice board members and staff.

Opportunities abound for nonprofit staff to network but this is one of the best opportunities for board members to meet and network with each other to share ideas, discuss challenges, and learn tips for better governance.
