From the Publishers...

Throughout this issue of Nonprofit Professional Performance 360 Magazine , nonprofit leaders and Millennial experts share deep insights into the realities facing nonprofits with the continued emergence of Millennials. The framework shared by this elite group of contributors can inspire, challenge, encourage, and format the road ahead for you as you look to engage Millennials at a deeper level in bringing impact to your community. One of the great lessons that research shows us about Millennials is that they collaborate horizontally. Millennials are looking for a community in which they can problem solve, challenge the status quo, glean from others, and be social. At the SynerVision Leadership Foundation, we get that. Our new website is developed to provide you, our reader, whatever your age, with a community built just for you! We are hosting ongoing, dynamic programming like “The Nonprofit Exchange: Tools and Strategies for Leaders,” Tuesdays at 2 PM ET, and #nonprofitchat, Thursdays at 9 PM ET, that will challenge your thinking. Our online community discussions will provide you with places to problem-solve and challenge the status quo. The seminars and webinars that we offer, both in-person and virtually, will allow you to glean insight from key leaders in our industry. And our website and social media channels provide a space for deeper connection with leaders who understand your passions and causes. Much like what we have seen in the Millennial generations, SynerVision functions through a major focus on collaboration. We believe that the win-lose competitive platform is unhealthy and overlooks the real value that many different perspectives bring. Connected to that, we believe that increased communication flow and informational access helps reduce duplication and loss of resources that are so valuable in our areas of impact. It is our hope that this issue will help challenge and encourage you, and a membership in the SynerVision website will serve to educate and engage you as you bring impact to your community. Enjoy the magazine, and come join the community at!
