What our members and sponsors are saying.
What I have experienced with GPNP is the amazing workshops, webinars, using the Catchafire pilot for 17 projects for The Stepping Stone Pathways as well as utilizing the Executive-in-Residence program. The GPNP Summit means that people who are not able to attend in person can attend to virtual webinars and still benefit from some of the informational sessions that are being offered. During the summit [we had] sessions that teach you HOW to achieve your goal; it is invaluable to grow and expand your business.
organization that cares both about its members and those they serve. Pittsburgh has a strong and
vibrant nonprofit community because of the continued efforts of GPNP.
The GPNP Summit for years has provided the opportunity to build stronger personal and professional relationships. I can only imagine the partnerships that have been formed as a direct result of conversations at past Summits. I have no doubt this year’s Summit will continue that trend.
