Networking roundtables provide a forum for nonprofit staff, in particular areas of expertise, to share successes and challenges, and to keep current on events and technology that impact their work. Sessions are built around a topic, and may include a guest speaker, small group discussions, sharing of information and resources, and networking.

The Leaders Circle format involves a small cohort group of participants from nonprofit organizations with a common role, e.g., nonprofit executives or human resource directors. It's a confidential and comfortable environment for discussion, peer-to-peer resource sharing, problem solving and professional development. An expert facilitator leads the sessions. Groups meet eight to ten times to discuss current issues and workplace problems of participants and share ideas leading toward potential solutions.
Learning Circles are groups of approximately 8-16 individuals from nonprofit organizations with a common interest, e.g., supervisors, who meet once a month for two hours with a trained facilitator to learn from each other in a supportive environment about a self-identified topic. Learning Circles are grounded in the idea that every member has something to contribute and something to learn.
Unlike Leaders Circles, Learning Circles use resource materials to guide discussion on topics selected by the group at the first meeting. Participants prepare presentations and discuss how to apply the material to their workplace situations. They also share experiences and give and receive feedback about handling workplace issues and professional growth. Groups meet six times in a program year.
