"Organizational Collaboration" is the topic of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition’s monthly forum from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, May 9, at First Baptist Church.

The forum will look at the barriers local organizations face when working together and how "business collaborations" might be developed to encourage efficiencies and cost savings.

Participants should use the Eagle Street entrance and are asked to bring their business cards and a non-perishable food item for donation to the Friendship Center food pantry.
