2-19 New Program:When It's All Up to You!

For several years here at the G&FC we've been compiling lists of resources for the one-person development office: On Feb. 19th Sue Greenberg from VLAA will expand that concept by discussing of the responsibilities and practicalities of leading a nonprofit whose mission depends on minimal staff and/or dedicated volunteers.  She'll talk about such essentials as time management, working with your board, internal controls, planning for future success and succession, etc. If you're a founder or executive director in this situation, come to the 2nd Floor Training Room here at Central Library  3 -5 pm and bring your questions and best advice.
