Can Security Build Community?

02/16/2023 (This Event Has Passed)

Please join us on February 16th from 11:00-12:00 PST / 2:00-3:00 EST for an NCN webinar on what to consider for safety and security in nonprofit centers, and how to prioritize community needs within your security assessments and policies.

Feeling safe in a space is the foundation for people to be able to deliver on their missions and participate in community driven buildings, but it’s often an aspect of our work that isn’t as straightforward as it seems. With many layers to consider, it’s important to look at this topic from various perspectives.

In this webinar, we will discuss not only the nuts and bolts of how to make sure a building is secure, but also address how you might consider and adapt to how different tenants and different community members define safety, and what you might do if a situation escalates. Speakers will share their experiences around various security protocols and assessments, community feedback processes, and tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way.

Who might benefit from this webinar: centers in development, centers in operation, property managers, security companies, or any organization that involves facilities management

Webinar Fee: NCN Member Fee: FREE  |  Non-member Fee: $40
