IFMA Community Services Fall Lunch & Learn

The topic of the fall quarter IFMA Atlanta Lunch and Learn for Nonprofits, held on November 17 at Georgia Lions Lighthouse, was Getting Discounts Using Nonprofit Procurement Vehicles.  David Kidd, Program Manager with U. S. Communities, a government purchasing alliance that assists public agencies and non-profits to save time and money in the procurement process, discussed how to access a no-cost, no-commitment contract established on behalf of all public agencies with the full buying power of all the U.S. Communities contracts behind it.  Nonprofits may register on line at or contact David Kidd at  



The Nonprofit Lunch and Learn program is held quarterly by the Community Services Committee, Rick Yarbrough (T.L. Gowin & Co., Inc.) and Emily Perry (Harris Perry), Chairs, and is open to all nonprofit organizations.  Our thanks to Community Services Partner Georgia Lions Lighthouse for providing our venue and to Coordinators Renee Bonnell (Chosen Enterprises) and Debbie Wiggins (RooterPLUS). The next event will be held February 16 on on Facilities Condition Assessment and Maintenance Plans.
