Remember these two old sayings?  1) What gets measured, gets done.  2) Create the plan and work the plan.  Many nonprofits do not take the time to create and work the plan or implement meaningful metrics. Those that haven't been tracking performance and keeping their finger on the pulse during this COVID pandemic may be in panic mode. During our time together, we will explore using Microsoft Excel to create your plan, work your plan, bring your metrics to life and build a strong fundraising base!

https://nicc.augusoft.net/index.cfm?method=ClassListing.ClassListingDisplay

There’s a pretty steep learning curve that comes with joining a board. Without proper guidance, adjusting to a new board position can be intimidating and lengthy. Worst case scenario:  some board members never find their footing and leave at or before the conclusion of their term.  Even if your new board member has previous experience serving, they’ve never served on your board. That's why board member training is so important!  Let's discuss key board training topics and strategies that will empower new members to be proactive from the start of their service. Empowered board members do more for your organization.
