    Nonprofit governance and leadership aren’t easy and building a strong nonprofit board can be difficult, especially if you’re a small organization.  It entails being knowledgeable about a wide range of topics that are unique to nonprofits and exclusive to board service.  A well-functioning board is essential to a thriving nonprofit.  But board development is often treated as an afterthought.  Your organization’s board of directors are your standard bearers, foundation builders, and strategic planners.  They are the public face of your organization and act as your chief cheerleaders and fundraisers.  The board is also responsible for steering the organization towards meeting its mission and ensuring its financial stability.  At many small, volunteer-led associations, clubs and nonprofits, the board may also be responsible for day-to-day operations.  Be sure to build your board with the right tasks in mind.

    How big should the board be? What are the ideal traits of a board member? How much training is needed?  How much time should board members expect to spend on fundraising activities? 

    This webinar provides easy to understand concepts and practical strategies to walk organizations through strategic and effective board member recruitment and engagement.  Participants will learn to how to assess current board member representation, develop recruitment strategies to address diversity and industry gaps, set clear and measurable fundraising expectations, and design step-by-step nomination and new board member orientation practices.

    It is common practice for organizations to use volunteers to help with a wide variety of projects.  By leveraging volunteers, we can create greater engagement with community members supportive of our work, as well as achieve more than doing everything ourselves. The time, energy, and resources that volunteers offer are critical to the success of most nonprofit groups, and the jobs done by volunteers are varied as the people who do them.  After all, volunteers save organizations moneybring needed skillsbring renewed energy and excitement, and increase community ownership.  Simply put, involving volunteers helps organizations accomplish their goals.  

    Volunteers can also drain resources if not focused and managed effectively.  So, maybe you're not sold on the merits of volunteers, at least for your organization.  "Volunteers are too much trouble," you might think; "they're not reliable; it takes too long to train them, and once you do, they just leave.  Also, we're liable for their actions - that's a problem we just don't need right now.  It's easier to do our work with paid staff."

    In the upcoming webinar, "Are Your Volunteers Helping or Hurting Your Organizational Capacity," find out the answers to some of the pressing questions regarding volunteer management.  Does my organization have the capacity to handle volunteers?  Are volunteers something my organization really needs?  What can my organization do differently to better manage its current volunteers?

    Data is one of the primary “capacity forces” that sustains all nonprofits.  Nonprofits depend upon population, social and economic indicators to, among other things, increase their understanding, improve their operations and programs, and advance their public policy and public awareness initiatives. 

    In order to make a meaningful impact upon their neighborhoods and communities, nonprofits must take time to assess the community’s strengths, weaknesses, needs, and assets as an essential first step to building organizational capacity – whether that’s tweaking existing programs or creating new ones and approaching funders and donors.

    Participants will be introduced to national and local data tools for collecting relevant indicators.  The training course is designed to help answer the following questions: (1) Where do I find the data?  (2) How do I extract the data?  (3) What does each data set tell me?  And, (4) What are the data’s limitations?  Participants will also learn how to easily map statistics and employ the data based on the organization’s defined parameters.  Learn how your organization can use data to continuously learn, adapt, and improve.

    Funders are increasingly asking organizations to go beyond talking about what they do to explain why it matters--what difference are these programs and services making in the community? How can funders know that their grants and donations are creating a positive change?

    "Outcome measurement" is more than a buzzword, and tracking and using outcomes well is critical to the health and reputation of an organization. Unfortunately, it can also seem like one more demand on organizations that don't have systems in place or trained staff for capturing this information. Through this training, Charitable Allies and Prosperity Indiana will help you understand the basics of how to measure and demonstrate your effectiveness through outcome measurement. By the end of the afternoon, you'll understand what outcomes are, their importance for improving and growing programs, and which outcomes are most important to your organization. We'll also address some of the challenges associated with outcomes measurement and tools or strategies for overcoming these in a small organization.

    Many nonprofits are rooted in a faith-based approach to alleviating societal challenges.  In a secular world, some faith-based nonprofits find it difficult to maintain the integrity of their religious identity when engaging with donors, funding organizations, beneficiaries, and the community.

    This webinar offers a discussion on how to navigate a faith-based organization in an environment that can appear reluctant, if not sometimes hostile, towards overtly religious solutions to some of our nation’s most pressing social issues.

    Backbone support is an essential component of collective impact.  A backbone is an entity that functions independently as a centralized management team for partnership efforts.  Corresponding with a growing interest in collective impact efforts, a growing number of foundations, policymakers, and practitioners endorse multi-sector partnerships and their use of a backbone support organization.  While the idea of using a backbone has gained currency, little attention has been paid to how to establish a backbone.  Instead, much of the prevailing discussion has focused on what a backbone should do after it has been formed.

    Under collective impact, backbone organizations cover six key activities:  supporting vision and strategy, supporting aligned activities, establishing shared measurements, building public will, advancing policy, and mobilizing funding. 

    This webinar delivers an overview of the backbone in supporting collective impact efforts, how to build backing for it, and its importance in keeping collective impact on track.

    Join the Indiana Assets & Opportunity Network for a webinar featuring A&O Steering Committee Members Kathleen Lara, Policy Director at Prosperity Indiana, and Erin Macey, Senior Policy Analyst at the Indiana Institute for Working Families, for an interactive webinar on advocating for causes important to you and your organization.

    About the Presenters:

    As the Policy Director, Kathleen works to advance network member priorities by helping to craft and advance Prosperity Indiana’s policy agenda before the executive and legislative branches of federal, state, and local government. She keeps members informed on policy issues, mobilizes members in response to specific advocacy efforts, and helps produce statewide convenings for the network.

     - 

    Erin witnessed disparities in access to educational opportunity firsthand as a middle school teacher. Motivated to examine and change the social systems that held these inequalities in place, Erin returned to graduate school and earned her doctorate in education policy. While pursuing her degree, Erin conducted policy analysis and completed program evaluations for Indiana schools, state agencies, and non-profits.

    In her most recent role as a technical assistance coordinator at the Great Lakes Equity Center, Erin developed publications and helped deliver direct, context-driven technical assistance to Midwest school districts struggling to provide equal opportunity on the basis of race, gender, and national origin. Erin's professional and personal experiences, especially as a mother of four, inspire her to continue to amplify the voices of those who are typically underrepresented in leadership and policy-making positions and, as a result, lack the supports they need to thrive.

    You are a respected professional with more than enough expertise to succeed in your field.  But sooner or later, you must communicate effectively with others that are either your peers or your subordinates.  The ability to communicate effectively with superiors, colleagues, and staff is essential, no matter what industry you work in.  Communication skills become even more critical if you you’ve been in your chosen profession for a long period of time and have risen into a management position.  By that time, you’ve encountered a wealth of information that you were never formally taught or shared.

    In this webinar, you will learn best practices for planning content and delivering confident and compelling presentations, including techniques for facilitating internal meetings and for confident and constructive conversations at networking events.

    Great board meetings leave us focused and energized: the goal of the meeting is clear; our team is motivated; and the process is smooth, and there are well-defined outcomes.  Not-so-great meetings, on the other hand, drain energy, and lower morale because of the perceived waste of time. 

    Participants will be challenged to reimagine traditional board meeting agendas.  Incorporating meeting facilitation techniques such as personal reflection activities, small group round table discussions, dot voting, and more will foster an environment of dialogue and critical thinking.

    This webinar is ideal for CEOs/Executive Directors, leadership staff, and executive board members.

    Without an effective and inclusive decision-making structure and process, there is potential for conflict between new directors and new staff members, particularly a new executive director, who seek effective involvement with organizational development and the founder(s) who seek to control the decision-making process.  This can be very disruptive both to the organization and to the individuals concerned and should be carefully and clearly diagnosed and addressed quickly and decisively.  It may simply limit further growth and success of the organization, or it may lead to bitter factionalism and divisions as the scale of demands made on the organization increases, or it may result in outright failure.  

    Coping with founder's syndrome requires discussion of the problem, a plan of action, and interventions by the founder, the board and or by others involved in the organization. The objective of the plan should be to allow the organization to make a successful transition to a mature organizational model without damage to either the organization itself or the individuals concerned.

    This webinar will offer a discussion on maintaining healthy relationships between the founder, the board, and the new executive director.

    Developing a shared measurement system is essential to collective impact.  Agreement on a common agenda is illusionary without agreement on the ways success will be measured and reported.  Collecting data and measuring results consistently on a short list of indicators at the community level and across all participating organizations not only ensures that all efforts remain aligned, it also enables the participants to hold each other accountable and learn from each other’s successes and failures.  (Kania and Kramer 2011)

    Data gathering and shared measurement systems are key elements for collective impact initiatives to better understand and assess their work, but can be also very challenging to start and sustain. 

    In this webinar participants learn from other initiatives about their practices related to gathering and sharing data, and the impact it had on their outcomes.

    As leaders across the social sector adopt the collective impact approach to problem solving, an important question looms in many people’s minds: Given how complex and unpredictable the work is, what is the best way to evaluate a collective impact initiative’s progress and success?  Traditionally, evaluations of specific interventions have focused on their results to determine whether or not (and how) they have “worked.”  But collective impact initiatives involve multiple activities, programs, and initiatives, all of which operate in mutually reinforcing ways.  Moreover, they aim to change highly complex systems.  As a result, merely taking a snapshot of a given intervention’s effectiveness at one point does not tell the whole story.  To truly evaluate their effectiveness, collective impact leaders need to see the bigger picture—the initiative’s many different parts and the ways they interact and evolve over time.  For that, they need a new way to approach evaluation. (Parkhurst and Preskill 2014)

    This webinar will cover evaluation and impact of efforts.  When working on collective impact efforts, it is essential to implement an approach to performance measurement and evaluation that is as multi-faceted, responsive, and flexible as the initiatives themselves.

    Too often nonprofit board members shy away from fundraising. When the subject comes up, many trustees suddenly become invisible or silent. Yet it is our responsibility to set up board members in active, satisfying roles that can support the fundraising process. But we frequently make mistakes that hurt, rather than help, our cause.  Engaging board members productively in fundraising is a common challenge.  Our organizations need board members who truly embrace their role in fundraising and are engaged at an appropriate level. 

    Is your board set for fundraising success?  Do they have everything they need to help the organization meet its annual fundraising targets?  Why are some board members so nervous about fundraising? And how do we go wrong when we approach them about helping in fundraising?  

    Participants will learn how to effectively engage board members in actively fundraising for annual campaigns, capital campaigns, and operational support.  Board coaching prompts, communications plans, board members personal fundraising plans will be shared and explored.

    According to the National Council of Nonprofits, organizations that are “serious about their own sustainability will also be serious about planning for smooth and thoughtful transitions of leadership – as well as making sure their nonprofit is prepared for unexpected departures.

    Often times, the individual who might be the best fit to succeed a nonprofit leader is already employed by the organization.  Professional development is essential to foster a cadre of staff – and volunteers – who can easily step into the role of CEO or executive director should those positions become vacant.

    This webinar explores ways to enhance your organization’s stability and sustainability by grooming your successor from within.

    Complex, systems change requires leadership from various partners: state government leaders, funding agencies, schools, hospitals, the private sector, community organizers and more.  This is where collective impact comes into play – as a method to engage partners from different sectors to solve the complex social problems of the day.  Collective impact – an approach which brings together different sectors for a common agenda to solve large multifaceted problems – can be applied to existing collaborative work to help facilitate cross-sector engagement to effectively implement their strategies to achieve their desired results. 

    Effectively applying the collective impact approach requires leadership from multiple partners – from state governments to funding agencies.  This session will assist organizations with identifying resources to help grow capacity and facilitate this cross-sector work.
