Fall Non Profit Forum will be held at Stockton University – Manahawkin Campus 10am with presenter Ann Marie Miller, Director of Advocacy and Public Policy of ArtPride NJ

The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce continues to provide non profit solutions for the region’s organizations serving artistic, historic and social service needs of our community. Partnering with Ocean County Commission of Culture & Heritage the next Non Profit Forum is scheduled on November 28 beginning at 10am at Stockton University’s Manahawkin Campus located at 712 E Bay Avenue Manahawkin. The topic of Turning Board Members into Ambassadors for your Cause will be helpful for all volunteer non profit organizations. It will provide the best practices needed to get elevate your board members efforts into promoting and best representing their non profit. Refreshments will be served.

The presentation will be provided by Ann Marie Miller, Director of Advocacy and Public Policy for the ArtPride NJ. Miller works with non profit groups across the state to integrate programs and services that advance the organization’s mission to increase awareness of how the arts in N.J. are integral to the state’s economy, education and overall quality of life. Her experience on how to get board members informed and engaged will be an asset to all representatives that attend, whether on staff or on the board.

For almost a decade the Southern Ocean Chamber of Commerce has been providing the free non profit forums several times a year which bring together volunteer and staffed non profits to share ideas, calendars, and have generated collaborations that still continue. As always, Ocean County Culture & Heritage Commission will offer credit for recipients of the county art or history grants to be applied towards grant compliance. There is no fee for any member or non profit to attend, but RSVP is requested to the Southern Ocean Chamber office at 609 494 7211, email to [email protected] or by stopping into their visitor center at 265 W Ninth Street Ship Bottom.
