Leadership Development: Preparing Your Team and Board to Carry Out the Organizational Mission
Presented by Aaron Phillips and Abigail Lechner
November 17, 8:30-10 a.m. at the WQLN Learning Center in Erie, PA
Registration is free for NPP members, $50 for non-members.

In this second seminar in the series, Recession-proof Your Nonprofit, presented by Decision Associates and The Nonprofit Partnership, you will learn:

  • How to recruit and retain the best employees
  • How to build a team that will embrace your organization’s mission
  • How to develop metrics that will achieve your organization’s goals
  • How to leverage the strengths and skill sets of your board of directors

In a recession, donors, granting agencies and funding agencies focus on supporting the top performing nonprofits in each service sector. Meanwhile, under-performing nonprofits often are urged to consolidate.

Now is the time to establish the framework that will propel your nonprofit into The Top 20% and ensure your organization's sustainability and success. From experience, we know that:

  • The Top 20% have the strongest reserves and financial sustainability
  • The Top 20% have the best market and public awareness
  • The best people want to be board members, employees and volunteers in The Top 20%
  • The Top 20% attract the best partners: related agencies, foundations, corporations, corporate foundations, board members and others
  • The Top 20% are able to develop the best relationships with funders, regulators and political entities

Decision Associates has worked with many of the region's highest performing nonprofits, studying their characteristics and comparing their performance by using ranking data from industry trade associations and our own studies. We invite board and staff from your organization to join us for this second seminar in a special series designed to help you recession-proof your nonprofit.

"In my Decision Associates Peer Group, I learned to truly 'think outside the box' and consider new avenues to grow my business. The experience was invaluable. while our group members came from different industries, we looked to each other for advice, encouragement and support to address the issues in our own companies. Decision Associates challenged us to address the issues that were tough but had the most impact on our business. I feel strongly enough about it that I have asked my boys to become part of this upcoming peer group; it will be one of the best things I can do for their growth."
