Agency partnership forums were held during the convention to facilitate discussions with convention participants related to agency-specific partnership issues. Below are summary reports for each of the forums that APPL has shared with agency leadership.
The Executive Directors' Roundtable provided an opportunity for nonprofit staff leaders to come together for a collaborative in-depth discussion on the evolving role of nonprofit public land partner organizations. Read the Executive Directors' Roundtable Summary Report for more details on their discussions and strategic perspectives.
The Buyers' Roundtable provided an opportunity for buyers from nonprofit partners engaged in retail operations to discuss hot topics related current issues and trends in the retail sector. Read the Buyers' Roundtable Summary Report to learn more about the topics that were discussed.
The Philanthropy Forum allowed fundraising staff to have an open discussion about the National Park Service's Director’s Order 21: Donations and Fundraising (DO21), which the NPS is looking to revise. The Philanthropy Forum Summary Report provides a synopsis of participant ideas and suggestions for guiding a revision process.
