Program Evaluation -- An Opportunity, Not a Burden

ID: 7158

You value the work that you and your staff do. You provide services that help people in need and you do so in a conscientious manner. It is exciting work and you want people to know about it - not just funders and oversight agencies that "evaluate" you - but colleagues and people who might come to you for service. How can you connect with them in a way that will tell the story of what you do and do so in a convincing manner? In this workshop learn how to orchestrate a program evaluation that tells the story about the services that you deliver in a way that meets program goals and objectives, and demonstrates the possibilities for the future. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.

Strategic Management

ID: 7151

Nonprofit organizations differ from their for profit counterparts in one key way: dedication to the charitable mission. Strategic management starts with setting the organization's mission, vision, and values, and ends with a strategic agenda: an organic, vital, and living document that proactively guides leaders to a common preferred future. The process works to align governance, management, and staff in a single direction and with common purpose. Metrics ("what gets measured gets done") are discussed that support the accountability of the management to clients and to the governing body, and which keeps the process fresh and self-sustaining. The model is outcome driven, built on business principles, and reflects the belief that: "Nonprofit" is a tax category, not a state of mind. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.
