If you manage a non-profit organization, you won’t want to miss this informative seminar. Get the facts from lawyers that have worked with non-profits for decades and are knowledgeable in the issues facing them in today’s environment. Be part of the conversation and enjoy lunch with your peers and colleagues.

Topics to be covered include:


We all hear a lot about crowdfunding and how much it can do for non-profits, but how much of that is hype, and what does it take to get a crowdfunding campaign in motion, let alone successful?  This session will cover the state of crowdfunding and some basic legal and logistical considerations for getting a campaign launched.  But most importantly, we’ll discuss the importance of “why” – for you, for your donors, and for your organization and its mission.


Volunteers are the lifeblood of non-profit organizations. However, volunteers cannot be managed or controlled the way an employee can. By using volunteer guidelines, background checks, and smart management, a NPO can protect itself against well-intentioned, but wayward volunteers. These same types of procedures should also be utilized for employees.


In the words of Russell Ackoff, “managers do things right…leaders do the right things.”  Strategic planning has become a bit of a buzz word, but in today’s economy and social/political environment, it is more important than ever. In this panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to hear experienced non-profit leaders share their thoughts on strategic planning and leadership, and how it has evolved in recent years.
