Getting to the Core of Nonprofit Management (In-Person)

Getting to the Core of Nonprofit Management (In-Person)

Thursday, September 26, 2024 (9:15 AM - 4:15 PM) (EDT)


Every nonprofit organization has formal and informal structures, processes and/or policies that help guide their work. Some are legally required. Others are implemented in reaction to or out of necessity because of an incident, a crisis, a funding requirement, or even just because someone thought it would be a good idea.  But what are the core elements that are truly needed to help lay the foundation for a thriving nonprofit organization? Whether new to nonprofit work or a more seasoned professional, this discussion-oriented workshop will incorporate best practices, lessons learned, case studies and peer learning. Participants will gain a better understanding of the basic pillars necessary for any nonprofit’s survival and the strategic considerations that can help an organization shift from surviving to thriving.

*This workshop replaces Nonprofit Management Essentials*

Learning Objectives:

  • The foundational elements required of any nonprofit organization and the added-bonuses that can help better position them for greater impact;
  • The variety of ebbs and flows associated with a nonprofit’s evolution and the key priorities and threats to keep mind at each bend in the road;
  • The variety of ways nonprofits can hold themselves accountable for their work - both internally and externally;
  • And the real struggle between balancing mission vs margin and the distinctness of the nonprofit business model in of itself.

Cost: $160 members, $320 non-members
