The Importance of Listening. . .

Well summer has arrived and with it a true feeling that post pandemic life is upon us. We’re having more face to face meetings and attending events. It’s been so nice to reconnect with people in person.

There was a time when business activity would slow down during the summer but here at TANGO we have a full agenda and many things to do. That being said I’m going to add one more task to my plate and embark on a listening campaign. Over the years we have gotten some of our best ideas from our Member’s suggestions.

As TANGO has grown (now almost 1500 nonprofit members) I don’t have the opportunity to spend as much time with our membership as I once did, plus the pandemic obviously put a damper on much of that. So between my daily meetings I’m going to reach out to a few Members each week to say hi and solicit your ideas on how TANGO can help move your organization forward. If you receive a call from me or an email please grant me a few minutes of your time. My Father always said “you were born with two ears and one mouth…what’s that tell you about the importance of listening!”

Have a Happy 4th of July and I look forward to talking with many of you this summer.

January 2024 – Founders Forum by Rollin Schuster

As many of you know we acquired the rights to show the Oscar nominated movie UnCharitable. It’s based on Dan Pollatta’s book and produced by acclaimed Hollywood Director Stephen Gyllenhaal.

Last Thursday evening was a cold and rainy, nasty night here in Hartford yet we filled the theatre at Trinity College with TANGO Members, all braving the weather to see the film UnCharitable.

Partners Perspective – January 2024

Staffing has been especially challenging for nonprofit Health and Human Services (HHS) organizations in recent years. Staffing in this industry has always been particularly difficult due to limited budgets, high employee turnover rates, and the level of specialized skills and certifications required for these roles.

December 2023 – Founders Forum by Rollin Schuster

Happy Holidays! 2023 was quite a year for us here at TANGO. We experienced unprecedented growth in our membership and most importantly a lot of positive feedback from many of you…thank you! This feedback is taken to heart and inspires us to do more to support the sector.
