The Intertwine Alliance Summits

Each spring and fall, The Intertwine Alliance convenes its partners and key supporters for a day of networking, information exchange, and celebration.

Providing high quality networking and learning opportunities is central to our mission of building community and capacity within our coalition of 100+ partners. We're also pleased to see growing participation from beyond our partner base, with public and private organizations, policymakers and nonprofits also drawn to our biannual Summits, targeted programs and workshops, and Our Common Ground Dialogues.
