Planning in Turbulent Times
Wednesday, October 25, 2017
How can any organization, nonprofit or for-profit, plan effectively in this time of uncertainty? Changing government spending priorities and tax code tinkering will likely impact nonprofit revenues. New health care mandates, paid sick leave laws, and other changes in personnel regulations can increase expenses. The traditional three to five-year strategic plan doesn’t work in today’s environment. This workshop will help Executive Directors and Board Members turn their organization into a proactive planning machine. Key planning concepts such as “Thinking in Time” and “Acting Like a Scientist” will be explained.
Presenters: Nancy Hall and Deb Jung, 501(c)Solutions 
Conflict Prevention and Resolution - A Communications Guide
Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
(snow date: Wednesday, January 31, 2018) 
Stress, anxiety, and differences of opinion can all lead to conflict. In this interactive workshop, you will learn proactive techniques to diffuse these emotions, and effective communication strategies to resolve conflicts that arise with clients, volunteers and staff members. Presenters: Bunny Egerton and Lacey Tsonis, Raising Munchkin LLC
Should Nonprofits Be More Like For-profits?

Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Most for-profit businesses are fair to mediocre. To simply copy any for-profit business is not going to ensure success. First and foremost, nonprofits need to know what success is and identify those organizations, both for-profit and nonprofit, that are the best in the breed. Using the framework from the business classic, Good to Great and the Social Sectors, participants will learn how to define and measure “Great”, get the right people on the bus, create a culture of discipline, and build a sustainable organization.
Presenters: Nancy Hall and Deb Jung, 501(c)Solutions
