He will discuss how to find clarity of purpose when pulled in a multitude of directions.

“Nonprofits are the driving force for much of the good and equitable that’s happening in our communities,” said UW-Green Bay Executive Officer of Continuing Education and Community Engagement Jess Lambrecht. “UW-Green Bay wants to make sure nonprofits are equipped with the tools, mindset and networking infrastructure that will empower them to continue and expand their missions of social benefit.”

Nonprofit organizations exist to solve problems and respond to change by fostering civic engagement and leadership. They are essential to thriving communities, which means we all have a stake in the power of their endurance.
