2015 RECAP
VICKI CLARK - Back by popular demand SUSAN J. ELLIS -
Morning Keynote
DATE: MAY 17, 2016
RADISSON PAPER VALLEY HOTEL - APPLETON, WI

HOW DO YOU INVITE VOLUNTEERS...

"Thoughtful Volunteer Management – Think about how you invite and use volunteers to move your organization’s mission to the next level.   Pro bono/skilled volunteers want to do meaningful work within nonprofits to help change our communities for the better, this includes accountants, attorneys and fund raising volunteers. Ellis said, “Volunteers should be appreciated & recognized as brains and mouths, not just hands and hearts.”  Each organization needs to be prepared to support their work and empower them to make those changes at your organization with you and your staff." - Julia Drobeck

VICKI CLARK ONCE AGAIN ADDED HUMOR...

"Vicki Clark once again added humor and great stories to her workshops and closing keynote.    “Thoughtful” communication.   Sending, receiving and transmitting messages are not forms of communication.   How do we, as organizations, communicate our hope on issues? Talking to each other again face to face and having thoughtful conversations about how we move our nonprofit missions forward.  Much of Vicki’s comments were directed toward informing and involving volunteers, staff, businesses, etc.-- if we don’t do these things, how can we expect our organizations to continue improving?

 

One of Vicki’s workshops was about “thoughtful” delegation. Delegation is about assets and building leadership skills. Thoughtful delegation is a strategy that builds capacity in organizations. Focus on the outcome, not the output, and you’ll see better results through planning and delegation." - Julia Drobeck

May 17 - AGENDA

The Enterprising Nonprofits 2016 event offers opportunities to share best practices, collaborate and network to support the community. For-profit and nonprofit business leaders will be joining forces to share knowledge in breakout sessions that focus on a variety of topics including: nonprofit boards, employee programs, volunteer programs, and the needs of executive directors and development directors. We have begun planning for next year's Enterprising Nonprofits event and we are excited to start rolling out the details! We'd love your feedback If you have any comments from last year's event or anything you would like to see this year please contact the planning committee at events@firstbusiness.com and include ENP 2016 in the subject line.

2015 RECAP

"The Get On Board event that was held during the two days following Enterprising Nonprofits received rave reviews from attendees.   Once again, Vicki Clark’s humor and practical information helped facilitate many ah-ha moments--Defining staff roles and the roles of the board of directors.   How does each group move the agency forward?  Practical tips of having a board calendar one year in advance so they can plan to attend trainings and events at the organization they serve at. Reviewing a set of policies on a rotating basis every three years. This assures that no policy is older than three years and is on a calendar; the work gets done and things aren’t forgotten."

- Julia Drobeck
