Lead your nonprofit effectively with UW-Green Bay’s new Nonprofit Education & Development Network
Green Bay, WI – Understanding the value that nonprofit organizations bring to our communities, UW-Green Bay has established a Nonprofit Education and Development Network (Nonprofit Network). To sharpen the abilities of nonprofit leaders, the Nonprofit Network has created a line-up of offerings that includes a foundational certificate, interactive in-person and on-demand advanced training and organized networking opportunities.
The Nonprofit Network brings together highly-skilled instructors and other nonprofit decision-makers within the community with sessions offered online and in-person.
Area nonprofit executives, staff, board members and community leaders are invited to participate in an upcoming conversation surrounding marketing plan development, featuring Kitty Johnson, president and CEO of the De Pere Chamber of Commerce. The session will be held via Zoom on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and hosted by UW-Green Bay’s Nonprofit Education and Development Network, in partnership with UW-Madison Extension Brown County.
Additionally, the Nonprofit Network will present the following full day training.
The Sustainability Mindset: Strengthening Your Business Model and Revenue Strategy
Thursday, October 27, 2022
9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Tundra Lodge Resort & Conference Center
Led by Steve Zimmerman, a top regional consultant in the field of revenue and finance, the session, will challenge nonprofit leaders to develop strategies and utilize tools to better anticipate and respond to a changing economic environment and the needs of the communities they serve. Participants will be introduced to a matrix map which provides a visual depiction of an organization’s business model that shows how each activity contributes to the organization’s mission impact and financial viability.
The Nonprofit Leadership Certificate enables nonprofit professionals from entry level to more experienced to optimize their impact by gaining a solid understanding of the five key areas essential to nonprofits – fundraising, financial management, board of directors, human resources and strategic communications. Participants can take individual sessions to fill in any knowledge gaps or pursue the five-course certificate and complete a capstone project specific to their organization. The certificate is offered in the fall and spring. For fall, sessions start mid-August. For spring, sessions start mid-January.
The Nonprofit Network is developing an on-demand, interactive course for those interested in serving on a board of directors for a nonprofit organization. The “Rewards and Responsibilities of Board Service” will launch in the new year. Other advanced sessions are also in development.
