BNID's membership program brings together organizations from across the Greater Boston area to support deeper connection and exchange.
Together with our members, we cultivate a range of workshops, resources, and discussion spaces designed to support more impactful programs, a thriving workforce, and overall organizational health. This includes member-identified priorites such as board development, fundraising, skills-based trainings, roundtable discussions on current events, and more.
Our membership program also fosters more robust relationships among Boston-based international NGOs and seeks to break down siloes across sectors and geographies.
