NCN is featured in an award-winning book!

Are you curious about the latest strategies in nonprofit shared space? Would you like to read a “how to” guide developed by respected experts in the field?

Check out the award-winning book Shared Space and the New Nonprofit Workplace. It’s not just our team that thinks the book is spectacular – we’ve read it cover to cover. The book has won the prestigious 2019 Terry McAdam Book Award for the best nonprofit book of the year.

Here’s a little more info…

China Brotsky, founder of NCN, co-authored a newly published book: Shared Space and the New Nonprofit Workplace. The book presents a comprehensive overview of shared space as an innovative model and effective long-term solution for nonprofit organizations’ need for stable, affordable office and program space. In particular, it focuses on co-locating multiple nonprofits in shared spaces, often called nonprofit centers, with shared services and a collaborative culture.

According to the co-authors, “This [book] provides a practical road map to develop new workspaces; documents benefits for nonprofit staff, organizations, and their communities; presents challenges and solutions from successful nonprofit shared spaces; and considers nonprofit centers’ history and future trends…Further, it offers nonprofits an opportunity to engage in forward-thinking practices, such as collaborative service delivery, green building operations and cross-sector alliances. The book will be useful to nonprofit executives, staff and board members, foundations, philanthropists, real estate and urban planning professionals interested in creating these projects, and researchers and students of the nonprofit sector.”

Don’t forget, next week (in addition to Sharing Innovation) we are hosting an event for the book!

Due to the book’s incredible response, we are hosting a book signing event Tuesday, Oct. 8th in downtown Denver (the night before Sharing Innovation). The evening will include an in-depth conversation with China Brotsky, a dive deep into the model, and light appetizers along with a cash bar. Attendance is free, but we’d love for you to RSVP on our event Facebook page, so we can plan to definitely have enough snacks and chairs.

If you’re not in Denver, check out our schedule of other book events across the US and Canada.
