Each year our membership discusses and chooses areas of focus within the non-profit sector.  The focus areas have been announced for the 2019/20 cycle.  The selected cycle runs Aug-May each year. This cycle, the areas of focus are:

  • Social and Human Services-including human trafficking, poverty and housing/shelter/homelessness
  • Health Related Issues-including mental health, addiction, disease disorders, chronic illness, disabilities and use of animals for therapy
  • Military, Veterans and their Families
