Alliance for Better Nonprofits Design Thinking Conference

By May 15, 2019July 11th, 2021No Comments

On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, our Nonprofit Insurance Specialist Katherine Smith attended the Alliance for Better Nonprofits Design Thinking Conference.

The conference was a great opportunity to learn more about the nonprofit community in East Tennessee. There were almost 100 participants, and Katherine met most of them! Strate Insurance Group set up a custom booth for the event to show how design thinking principles can be applied to risk management.

The Alliance for Better Nonprofits (ABN) is a membership-based organization that serves nonprofits in 25 East Tennessee counties by helping them achieve their missions and make a bigger impact in their communities. At the same time, ABN serves as a catalyst for collaboration aimed at reducing duplication and increasing cooperation among nonprofits seeking to address community issues.

ABN is the first nonprofit resource center in East Tennessee, and the only organization uniquely dedicated to serving nonprofits and their specific needs.

We look forward to working with ABN again soon!
