Nonprofit leaders prepare to build better communities together

OLEAN, N.Y., September 6, 2016 – Lana Benatovich, president of the National Federation for Just Communities of Western New York, will deliver the keynote address, “Leading for Today, Planning for Tomorrow,” at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation’s sixth annual Nonprofit Networking Day.

“We’re very excited to have Ms. Benatovich deliver this year’s keynote,” said CRCF Executive Director Karen Buchheit. “She’s long been a leader and innovator in the nonprofit world, and I know that she’ll enlighten and inspire all those in attendance.”

Nonprofit Networking Day brings together nonprofit organizations’ staff, board and volunteers for an opportunity to collaborate, learn and network.

Drawing from her extensive nonprofit background, Ms. Benatovich will share best practices for establishing positive and supportive relationships in the workplace and within the diverse communities in the Southern Tier region.

“Her speech will inspire nonprofits to not only be the best they can be, but also to be collaborative partners in our region’s vitality,” said Ms. Buchheit.

Ms. Benatovich, a graduate of Tufts and Columbia Universities, brings a diverse, experienced background to the National Federation for Just Communities of Western New York. She’s well-schooled in education, psychology and law, and she’s utilized each of those areas to become a one-of-a-kind advocate and fighter for social change, equality and justice.

Ms. Benatovich, a New York City native, has helped to implement community policing initiatives, anti-hate and anti-violence programming and has overseen and coordinated countless other conferences, sessions and seminars that shed light on the problems our communities face and in turn bring leaders together to begin the process of overcoming those struggles.

Ms. Benatovich also serves through her affiliation with many other organizations including the St. Bonaventure University board of trustees, Network of Religious Communities and Buffalo Council on World Affairs, where she is past president.

Ms. Benatovich will share her knowledge, leadership insights, collaboration tips and much more at Nonprofit Networking Day, November 4, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on the St. Bonaventure University campus.

There will also be breakout sessions on a variety of topics following the keynote.
