The Nonprofit Center presents its first roundtable discussion on the topic of “organizational partnering.” Almost all of us are doing it in one form or another. We’ll discuss best practices, pitfalls, models of collaboration, and how to choose the right partner. Participants will meet in the auditorium of the Berkshire Athenaeum (Pittsfield Library) on Wendell Avenue in Pittsfield and are encouraged to bring lunch. Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum will provide refreshments. Panelists include Jeff Gagnon, Program Manager at Community Access to the Arts, Alex Reczkowski, Library Director/Berkshire Athenaeum, Christa Collier, Executive Director of Northern Berkshire United Way, and Randy Kinnas, Executive Director of the Berkshire Family YMCA. This event is free to Berkshire nonprofits but participants must register by emailing

Parking: There is a small lot at the rear of the Athenaeum (Bartlett Avenue), and some on-street parking on both Wendell and Bartlett Avenues (closely monitored for parking violations because of the courthouse close by). There are metered lots on First Street and on East Street and the corner of West and North Streets at the opposite side of the Park Square intersection.
