NNIP Alumni Network

Over the history of NNIP, we have experienced a modest turnover of key individuals from partner organizations that represented significant losses to the network. Many leaders in our field either retire or transition to positions at other organizations. The NNIP Alumni Network enables interested individuals to retain their affiliation with the partnership beyond their tenure at an NNIP partner organization.

Through the Alumni Network, we minimize the loss of knowledge, experience and innovative thinking when individuals leave the NNIP partner organizations. It also serves to broaden the perspectives and insights possible within NNIP by drawing on varied institutional perspectives and approaches as established NNIP participants move on to other workplaces.  The network has established criteria and procedures for nominating and admitting alumni.
