Driving Directions

The nonprofit world is an amazing place. Filled with exceptional people intent on changing the world for the better. And, in many ways, doing just that. Growth in the nonprofit sector is currently outpacing corporate America (Vu, 2015). Nonprofit managers are often passionate about their cause, but have not been trained in basic business practices.

This symposium series is designed for nonprofit Executive Leadership and Board Presidents. 

This is a 4 part series that takes place weekly on the following dates:
March 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st, 2016 from 1:30 pm-4:00 pm
The cost is $20 for all 4 sessions to cover speaker and printing costs.  As you register it will indicate a $5 charge for each session. 
Sessions are designed to be done on an as-needed basis but participants are encouraged to get involved with the entire program to take advantage of some of the cross-cutting pieces (like a consulting project where participants are randomly assigned to a program or project from another organization and tasked with serving as a consultant to help improve that concept).
Here is a sample of some of the topics covered in the sessions: 
March 10, 2016-Organizational Governance
          Finance and Audit
          Strategic Planning

March 17, 2016-Community Impact
March 24, 2016-Community Relations
          Brand Messaging, Telling Your Story         
          Social Media
March 31, 2016-Development/Fundraising
          Big and bolder Grants
          Annual Scorecards
          Managing a Volunteer Board
