Nonprofit Network


The Nonprofit Network at the Center for Community Innovation (CCI) in Salem, OR, provides an opportunity for nonprofit staff/volunteers in the region to meet each other and to investigate how you can collaborate with each other to better serve the Mid-Willamette Valley!  Held on the last Thursday of the month from 8:30 to 10:00 am, attendees will have the opportunity to network and attend a short presentation.  Topics change each month.  Build your support system, introduce staff at all levels to the value of networking and learn from others.  There is no charge for the program.

The Center for Community Innovation (CCI) strengthens the nonprofit sector, promotes philanthropy, and facilitates innovation to build and support a thriving community.


With increasing competition for attracting and retaining top talent, making great hiring decisions is no easy task. This session will give you practical guidance, insight and tools to help you better attract the talent your organization needs.  We will also challenge the traditional approach to interviewing by shifting the focus to strengths, value alignment and engagement to help you learn how to make better hires simply with the questions you ask in an interview.
