As more healthcare organizations develop strategies to address the health-related social needs of their populations, and as evidence-bases social interventions demonstrate returns on investments, demand for the delivery of standardized social services is growing. On the one hand, this presents a natural challenge for many local aging and disability community-based organizations (CBO) that deliver such services, as they are limited in their ability to scale operations due to lack of funding, operational capacity constraints, and political and geographic boundaries. On the other hand, a natural opportunity is emerging as many CBO leaders are creating new networks and/or formalizing existing collaborations in order to address these challenges and provide social services to healthcare organizations in greater volume and across broader geographic areas. If you have been contemplating leading and/or joining network-oriented arrangements, please join us on June 4, 2020, to learn more about how market conditions are stimulating CBO network development opportunities, how to prepare and ready your organization for network leadership and/or membership and how other CBOs are navigating network activities. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Recognize market conditions that are accelerating the opportunity for CBO network development;
  • Understand the current CBO network landscape based on insight from a review of more than 200 networks involving CBOs;
  • Identify competency and capability areas for readying your organization for network leadership and/or membership; and,
  • Learn from a leading CBO network in action with an emphasis on how they prepared their own organization for leading a network and their role in supporting other CBOs for network membership.
