2023 PPCI Annual Meeting with Aziz Isham of Twenty Summers

Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) is pleased to announce that Aziz Isham, Executive Director of Twenty Summers, will be the guest speaker at the PPCI Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 19, 2023 during lunch.

Metaphors and Mantras: Building Meaningful Narratives from the Ground Up

An effective nonprofit organization has, at its core, a moving and meaningful story. The story must be unique, and it must be grounded in the organization’s core principles. It must live its values. More than that, it must be like a meme – easily translatable, spreadable, maybe even viral… This is core work. Fundamental work. Are we giving our organizations and our leaders the time and space to develop it? Are there any ‘tricks’ we can use?

The luncheon meeting will be held on Thursday, January 19, 2023 from 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at The Cape Codder Resort located at 1225 Iyannough Road (Rte 132) in Hyannis. 

The luncheon is FREE to attend with advance registration for current PPCI members and $45 per person for non-members. To attend this event, please register online via the link below. Deadline for registration is Sunday, January 15th, 2023.
