The Changing Public Contract = Changing Expectations

Every other year, the Council brings together recognized thought leaders from both the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors for a conversation exploring topics of critical interest to the future of the social sector. The 2016 Spring Colloquium considered the changing “public contract” and the growing expectations of the social sector.

We hope you enjoyed the discussions that reflected on the shift that is taking place in responsibility for providing public services that have historically been in the domain of government.
