RELEVANCE AND IMPACT

In June, WIN’s Book Club read The Art of Relevance, by Nina Simon.  The book generated a remarkable Zoom discussion on how we can expand our relevance to members, new and future.  How open are our doors to newcomers?  And, once those newcomers are inside, how do we keep each member engaged and willing to share their skills to make a unique  Impact in New Hanover County?  The Book Club highly recommends this book to every WIN member.

A Critical Handshake

Grants Committees and the Philanthropy Team -- working together for Impact

Over the last several months, the WIN membership has been invited to participate in looking at what we mean by "impact" and how to maximize the impact that WIN can have. Through the WIN circles, discussions at the Annual General Meeting and individual conversations, every WIN member has had the opportunity to contribute to the conversation. The results of these conversations will shape how WIN approaches philanthropy going forward. Read this great conversation between Maureen Vasquez (Grants) and Isabella Hinds (Philanthropy)  here
