Coffee Power Hour Schedule

Coffee Power Hours are casual networking events that are free & open to everyone, member or not! Each month we will offer a different topic for discussion and attendees are invited to discuss issues, share ideas, and form a network in support of the nonprofit community.

Coffee Power Hours will be available for two sessions on each day, 8:00am-9:00am and 12:00pm-1:00pm. We invite you to join us at any time during those timeframes, and stay for however long you are able.

Join us for our next Coffee Power Hour on Wednesday, July 14th to discuss the topic of networking.

Our morning session on July 14th will be IN-PERSON at Public Espresso + Coffee (391 Washington Street Buffalo, NY 14203). Our afternoon session will be VIRTUAL. Please register in advance for a proper head count, or to receive the Zoom link.
