This webinar, to be led by national expert Scott Cotenoff of La Piana, will address the many opportunities nonprofits can utilize to share costs and operate more efficiently.

Informed by 20+ years’ worth of experience in this area, La Piana outlines the variety of potential organizational relationships, key drivers of success and potential challenges to achieving success, as well as the process by which organizations can develop these relationships.
