      Strategic Planning is a powerful word with various meanings. Let’s de-mystify nonprofit strategic planning!  Participants will learn about the benefits and purpose of the process; how to engage folks in your organization and who should be involved; the different parts of a strategic planning process and how a strategic plan can be used internally AND to inform and develop relationships with funders, donors, volunteers and other people who are critical to your success. 


      Getting Your Books in Order:  Alfreda Barringer, RoadMap Consulting

      Identify best practices to help community organizations learn more about accounting and fiscal management.  We’ll explore what you’re required to report, the pieces you need in place to report effectively, and ways to begin building a reserve.


      Building and Maintaining Effective Boards:  Cynthia Brown, Resourceful Communities

      This interactive session will explore Board roles and responsibilities with emphasis on recruitment and retention of board members, its governance/leadership role, board operations and structure.  This workshop is designed for Staff and Board participation.
