The nature, structures, management and leadership of non-profits is going through monumental shifts. With competitive funding environments, technological requirements, the democratization of decision-making, a longing for aligning values to mission, there is a need for greater understanding of new models, shared leadership, asset-based development, collaborative processes and decision-making. This is an opportunity for directors, board, management and staff to explore and apply effective practices for:
• Building sustainable partnerships and alliances within and outside of your organization

• Exploring shared leadership management models and opportunities

• Motivating and mobilizing staff and volunteers

• Developing and encouraging on-going community-based support

• Cultivating personal and organizational well-being through this shifting landscape

Program Cost: $565 ($407.50 tuition + $157.50 meals/accommodations)   

Please register at least 2 weeks in advance to secure your place in this program.
