    2. develop short-term and long-term strategies to advance and/or strengthen shared advocacy issues, and/or collaborate to support programming and initiatives.
    3. determine if there a desire for regular meetings of senior staff to share best practices among participants,
    4. determine if there is a desire to create a program to educate members of NPW and the network of organizations associated with nonprofits about the needs and capabilities of people with disabilities, and cross training on disability etiquette.

    Prior to a meeting the May 14th, a short survey will be distributed to help inform the discussion of agenda items below.

    • Welcome and Introductions
    • Identification of Common Needs as We Emerge from COVID-19
