November 3: Strategic Planning
Sometimes we become so preoccupied with immediate issues that we lose sight of ultimate organizational objectives. A strategic plan is a visionary, conceptual but directional document that helps organizations figure out where they want to go and how they want to get there. In this workshop, participants will learn about the importance of strategic plans, and will walk away with knowledge of strategic planning methods, models, and elements.
Facilitator: Ron Hayes
November 17: HR Basics
In any organization, it is important to attract, retain, and develop strong workers and leaders. This allows for better program implementation and development, and decreases staff turnover and conflict. In this workshop, participants will explore basic HR system elements such as orientation details, contracts, policy manuals, and job descriptions, and focus on performance reviews and other issues facing non-profit organizations.
Facilitator: Michelle Harrison
December 1: Understanding Evaluation: A Primer
Although their work is meaningful, many organizations may struggle with how to demonstrate to funders and the wider public that their programs are important. In addition, organizations may need to determine for themselves whether programs are effective or whether they should be changed. This workshop explores different concepts and approaches to program evaluation.
Facilitator: Garry Loewen
December 8: Effective Proposal Writing
Learn more about funders, what they are looking for and how they select winning proposals. Learn how to lay-out and write a credible, easy to read proposal that meets your funders’ needs. This workshop will examine strategies and develop effective techniques for writing successful proposals for organizational funding or project support, and is ideal for those who have to write convincing documents to secure necessary funding and resources for their project, program or event.
Facilitator: Rolande Kirouac
