Event Details

The 2016 election season is in full swing. The traditional constituencies of the right and left appear to be in flux as candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have energized previously disengaged voter blocks. This, along with national and local economies that appear to be growing but not benefiting all citizens, could facilitate a new political status quo beginning in January 2017. What will November’s national, state, and local elections mean for nonprofits? Given governments’ need for nonprofits in many policy areas, will the sector sustain its current status quo, or are its market share, mission-critical functions, and benefits such as tax exemption, in danger of slipping away? Join us for a panel discussion about what this November’s elections could mean for the nonprofit sector, its funders, employees, and missions.

Panelists: Jatrice Martel Gaiter, Executive Vice President of External Affairs, Volunteers of America; Geoffrey Plague, Vice President of Public Policy, Independent Sector; Irv Katz, President Emeritus, National Human Services Assembly; Mark Hrywna, Senior Editor, The Non Profit Times

This webcast is co-hosted by Independent Sector.
