“You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.” – Rahm Emanuel
NYTAP chose “Thriving in the New Economy” as our overall theme for 2010 because we believe that every crisis, however challenging, can be filled with possibility. Throughout 2010 our programs offered the field of Management Assistance the opportunity to:
>Identify new approaches to old problems;
>Develop new strategies for impact;
>Rethink established tactics;
>Monitor the impact of the new economy on nonprofit organizations, funders, government agencies and individual consultants;
>Engage with thought leaders in our field;
>Participate in forums where new ideas could be discussed and new contacts made.
NYTAP seeks to present events of cutting edge interest to the field of management assistance that are themselves innovative in design and offer substantive opportunities for networking and community as well as top line information.
