Dear [first name]
I want to personally invite you to join The Nonprofit Centers Network (NCN), the premiere peer learning organization for nonprofits and charities that share space with one another. I have been a member of NCN for [insert number of years], and NCN has been an invaluable resource for my organization.
Knowing what I do about your organization, I’d recommend you get involved with NCN. The Ask-NCN listserv is a gold mine of tips and advice. Over 150 shared space practitioners share their experience weekly through this forum. NCN also offers great webinars and trainings, and their Online Resource Center has templates to keep you from reinventing the wheel.
I encourage you to check out the NCN website (https://www.nonprofitcenters.org/become-a-member/) for more information on the benefits available to members. I’ve also attached some more information about membership.
I’m happy to share more about my personal experiences as an NCN member with you. You can also contact Leena Waite, Member and Program Coordinator of NCN, at 720-836-1189 or email@example.com with questions. And, If you decide to join this great organization, please list my name in the “referred by” field in the application.
I hope you take advantage of this wealth of information and resources.
