Key Note Speaker Zoot Velasco: The Importance of the Work We Do

Zoot Velasco is a recognized artist, actor, dancer, storyteller, author, historian, college instructor, community capacity building consultant, podcast host, TEDx/event producer, award-winning STEAM and arts curricula designer, keynote speaker, workshop leader, emcee, foster parent, and husband. His life was defined by one event. Zoot was severely burned as an infant, losing the use of his right foot. He grew up in a hospital, inner-city neighborhoods and a bomb shelter. Yet, he went on to a twelve-year career as a professional dancer and actor. He has held some very odd jobs as a live wax figure; a mannequin model; a high fashion model and choreographer; a break dancer on MTV for Prince and Michael Jackson; a mime and crash test dummy in films and commercials; and a swing dancer with Lionel Hampton and the Count Basie Orchestra.

He holds a degree in dance from St. Mary’s College, an MBA from Hope International University and professional designations in arts education, fundraising, management and conflict resolution. As a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE 2011), Zoot has raised over $25 million dollars for various community benefit organizations. He teaches courses in Nonprofit Management at CharityHowTo.com, Cal State Long Beach, Cal Poly Pomona, and Gianneschi Summer School for Nonprofits at Cal State Fullerton based on his book for new community leaders.

  • Navigating the Uniform Guidance (OMB): Even though the Uniform Guidance – the administrative, cost principle and audit requirements for federal grantees – has now been in effect for several years, questions about the rules, especially around implementing them, persist. In this session, we review the rules, discuss the impact of them on your CAA and identify systems, policies and procedures to review and possibly update. We will focus on sections of the Uniform Guidance that CAAs often have questions about such as indirect costs, procurement procedures, relationships between pass-through entities and their subgrantees and more. September 12, 9-11:45am

  • Moving the needle with intergenerational poverty families and individuals (IGP): Moving a needle seems inconsequential in most areas, but for intergenerational poverty "moving the needle" is breaking the poverty trap for future generations. You will learn to identify intergenerational poverty families, understand their barriers, and evaluate your community's ability to serve these families.
  • Retaining entry-level, lower-wage employees (HR):Are you tired of the turnover treadmill? We will explore the true cost of employee turnover and how an employee's personal stability affect your organization's success. Attendees will learn to use a strategy matrix helping you identify and develop real solutions.
