About this event

Intentional Culture Creation for Your Nonprofit

Organizations with strong cultures outperform their competitors. The culture of your nonprofit is instrumental in attracting top talent (staff, board and volunteers) and support, and in building engagement. But when is the last time that you thought about the culture of your association?

Culture is rooted in the fabric of nonprofits and associations but rarely evaluated, reviewed or discussed. Is your environment positive or toxic? Is your organization collaborative or divided? Is everything within your organization mission-driven? Is everyone clear on your mission and vision and why they are important?

Join us in August for a robust discussion about the cultural development of your organization. We will discuss the characteristics of successful cultures, the benefits of having a truly aligned culture from the top down and the importance of reviewing your nonprofit activities through the cultural lens of your association.

About the Big Buzz Breakfast Club

The Big Buzz Breakfast Club is a nonprofit leadership series hosted the second Thursday of each month by Big Buzz Idea Group. It is designed to Power Up your nonprofit organization by providing leaders with information they need to spark the growth of their organization.

Big Buzz Idea Group works with nonprofits and associations that want their offices to run more efficiently so they can focus on their mission and organizational growth. We believe that leadership can more effectively work on their organization knowing that an honest and caring team is managing the day to day operations. For less than the cost of a single employee, our experienced team executes a variety of back office tasks like bookkeeping, social media management, website management, newsletter production, member management, donor relations, and event planning.
