Description

Event Synopsis:

Although we can’t predict the future, we can anticipate change and develop a plan (or two) that allows us to be resilient when unexpected events occur. While strategic plans and succession plans are always helpful, there are a number of other things nonprofit organizations can do to prepare for the unexpected including:

  • Assess risk;
  • Develop alternate financial scenarios;
  • Diversify funding;
  • Strengthen the board;
  • Develop internal leadership and cross train staff;
  • Engage in advocacy;
  • Explore the spectrum of organization redesign options from co-location and shared administrative services to mergers and acquisitions; and
  • Work with other leaders to develop collective strategies for events that might affect the sector as a whole.

Join us on June 6 as we explore the basics of the options above. There will be a facilitated discussion with colleagues where you can share concerns about the future, learn what others are doing and identify opportunities for collaboration and mutual support.

The only constant is change.” - Heraclitus, ancient Greek philosopher
