A: "Let's Get Strategic" Bree Gillespie and Lauren Finn, coLAB

"Building your organization’s strategic plan only comes around so often. Infusing creativity and facilitation into the strategic planning process makes it more engaging, enabling the Board and the organization to build capacity for mission-driven success. Join us for a discussion around getting down to business and getting strategic."


B: "Go Get Grants" Ken Harrison

"Join us to find out what you need to know in order to create a grants program.This includes the following focus areas: Getting ready to write, finding grants, and grant writing basics. As a follow up topic- after you get the money, what do you do next?"


C: "Compassion Fatigue: Using Trauma Informed Practice to Recognize, Prevent and Treat Burnout" Elspeth Moffatt and Nicole Stevens, Community Services Group

"We devote the best part of our time and energy to helping others lead full and rich lives. We pursue this work because our personal mission is closely aligned with the mission of our organization. The work is rewarding, but it’s also demanding and sometimes draining. In this session, we will provide information and examples of compassion fatigue while facilitating a conversation about experiences and best practices for addressing and preventing burnout."


D: "Having a Sales Mindset" Greg Orth, Sandler Training

"One of the pitfalls that often occurs with nonprofit organizations is not having a “sales” mindset. Primary efforts are usually centered around the services provided and sales (fundraising) takes a backseat to design, implementation, and marketing. You can’t deliver your product or service unless you have financial support. We will explore ways to implement a system that puts ‘sales’ at the forefront."


E: "Understanding Behavioral Styles – Basic" Greg Orth, Sandler Training

"NOTE: This session is for people who have never taken or learned about behavioral styles (DISC, Myers Briggs, Predictive Index etc.) Much of the success of organizations depends on building and maintaining strong relationships. One of the best ways to truly engage with people and make them feel comfortable is by understanding their different behavioral styles (how people prefer to communicate). Using the DISC model as a baseline, we will talk about the different behavioral styles, and how we can use this information to have better interactions with clients, staff and supporters.



F: "Understanding Behavioral Styles – Advanced" Greg Orth, Sandler Training

"NOTE: This session is for people who are familiar with the DISC behavioral style model. Together we will explore the DISC behavioral style model beyond the basics. This session will dive deeper into how we can use the concepts of the DISC behavioral styles to better engage with investors, staff, and clients to maximize our interactions with them. We will break down differences in things like motivation, decision making and change, and how each style acts and reacts differently depending on the person."


G: "Developing Next-Gen Leadership In The Workplace" Jaime Arroyo, ASSETS and Work Wisdom LLC

"What can companies provide emerging leaders to attract and retain them? Hint: the answer isn't more money. This session will reveal what young leaders-to-be are looking for from their employer."


H: "Social Enterprise 101" Jaime Arroyo, ASSETS and Work Wisdom LLC

"Think you or your organization has what it takes to launch a successful social enterprise? This session will discuss the realities of social enterprise development and highlight key strategies to improve your chances of success."


I: "Developing Key Metrics For Your Nonprofit Organization " Eric Gervase, Cargas Systems

"Nonprofits today are consistently challenged with the task of having more impact with access to very few resources. Learn how to develop key metrics for your organization, allowing you to focus on the right outcomes and efforts, and how to use technology to perform and report against those key metrics."


J: "Volunteer Management: Seeing Volunteers As Staff Extension Beyond “Free Labor” Kevin Ressler, Meals on Wheels of Lancaster

"Too often we have people calling us to volunteer for positions we haven’t yet created or anticipated. We tend to respond from a perspective of crises triage. Join in a conversation and brainstorming session about how to better think about and plan for elevating the volunteer role beyond just “available hands” into an extension of your workforce both in qualitative expectation and effective management of their skills."


K: "Avoiding The Volunteer Management Burnout" Kevin Ressler, Meals on Wheels of Lancaster

"Staffing around volunteer management can be a challenge for an organization. This could be due to a board’s unwillingness to pay for a dedicated staff position. Bring your challenges to the group thinktank for a problem-solving brainstorming session where we will together explore some of your real-world challenges and offer feedback to one another in a facilitated conversation answering two simple questions: “How does my organization provide value to volunteers? How can we demonstrate value to the board to take managing a program seriously?"


L: "Doing More With Less – Social Media Strategies & Tactics For Nonprofits" Kris Bradley and Mike McMonagle, Namespark

"If it seems like social media platforms are in constant flux, it's because they are. This session will feature social media marketing and advertising strategies and tactics that will help to support your overall marketing plan (without draining all of your resources in the process). With years of supporting nonprofit clients and serving on nonprofit boards under their belts, Kris and Mike will dive into actionable insights that you can take back to the office and use right out of the gate."


M: "Finding & Keeping Great Employees" Gina Breslin, North Group Consultants

"A bad apple spoils the bunch. The cost of a bad hire is expensive not only in dollars and time spent, but also in the negative effect on work environment, company culture and employee engagement. This impact is even more significant in a smaller organization. Hiring well is both an art and a science. In this session we will explore the path to finding and keeping great employees – the main contributor to the growth and success of our organizations. They increase morale, efficiency and innovation, and, attract your next great employees."


N: "How To Successfully Navigate Various Personalities In The Workplace" Mila Pilz, Advoz

"This interactive workshop will explore how self-awareness, communication and conflict management skills, can be used to manage common sources of conflict in the work place, ranging from personality clashes between coworkers to talking politics and other "hot topics."


O: "Finance 101"

"Take a deep dive into the new accounting standards to be issued and effective for nonprofit organizations, including the new nonprofit reporting standards and the proposed changes to accounting for grants and contributions.The presentation will also highlight financial responsibilities that Board Members should be aware of and key financial indicators to monitor.


P: "Champions of Transformation: Building and Sustaining Equity & Inclusion" Tanay Harris, Tenacity Consulting

"Organizations and businesses are waking up to the reality that diversity and inclusion is an asset and requires work. In this session, we will better understand how we can truly build resilient, equitable and just organizations and businesses that create real and long lasting change in our communities and the world. We will also develop specific ways to champion diversity, equity and inclusion within your organization or business on interpersonal and systemic levels. This interactive workshop will help offer real guidelines to assist in building a framework that truly shifts power structures, so that our organizations and businesses can truly thrive and mirror the culturally vibrant society we live in."


Q:"Nonprofit and Corporate Collaboration" Vanessa Philbert and Arelis Perez, Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County

"Working with a corporate partner can help your nonprofit organization achieve greater impact. Join us and learn about how partnerships and collaboration are strategic alliances that are intended to achieve greater impact than any organization could generate on its own. These alliances exist along a broad spectrum of approaches, ranging from coalitions to more highly integrated joint programming and shared services.
