Business Acumen: Tips for Forming a Regional Network of Community-Based Organizations

January 24, 2018

ACL's Office of Nutrition and Health Promotion Programs (ONHPP), in collaboration with consultant Tim McNeill, invites you to the first discussion in a two part business acumen webinar series that will include tips for community-based organizations (CBOs) on forming a regional network.

Wednesday, 31 January, from 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET.

This question and answer webinar will include an overview of essential steps to forming a network, legal and financial considerations, and operational elements that are key to operating a successful CBO network. Organizations that are working with healthcare providers, hospitals, and managed care organizations often find that the required capacity and/or geographic region is beyond the scope of one independent community-based organization. This lack of regional capacity may hamper contracting opportunities. However, forming a network of CBOs to cover a broader geographic region may provide the added capacity and geographic reach to meet the needs of your customer. Organizations seeking to form networks should take into account multiple items in order to have a successful execution strategy.

Don't miss this event taking place on Wednesday, January 31 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET.

*The next webinar in this series will include CBO perspectives on having undertaken this network approach*

Webinar Facilitator and Presenter:

Phantane Sprowls, Program Analyst, ACL

Tim McNeill, Independent Health Care Consultant
