Philanthropic Assistants & Coordinators Network (PACNET) Spring Meeting


Our spring meeting topic is project management! Assistants and coordinators juggle many projects and work with stakeholders across the organization. You have to ensure that work gets done efficiently, deadlines and deliverables are met and the appropriate people are kept in the loop.

In the spirit of continuous learning and resource sharing, the June PACNET meeting will be an opportunity to swap project management tips and tools with fellow members and support one another in your respective roles.

Donita Volkwijn, Manager of Knowledge Management at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, will facilitate the meeting and offer the group a knowledge management framework – people, process, technology – that can help you identify both assets to draw on and challenges to address in your management of projects.

Immediately following the program, Philanthropy New York is delighted to host a networking reception for PACNET members.
