INN Peer Communities

Want to talk with people who have similar jobs or work at organizations that are similar to yours? Tell us about yourself and we’ll add you to the Peer Community Slack channels that interest you. Each of the 11 channels are facilitated by a Community Leader who has volunteered to help spark conversations in the channels, connect members to one another and steer you toward INN resources. 

The News Fundraising Community is open to both INN members and non-members. All other communities are only open to INN members — including staff, board members and regular freelancers.
