A Roadmap to Success: Why Succession Planning Matters
Let’s create a practical roadmap to guide the ongoing process of attracting and retaining your talented team. We begin with your organization’s story and then focus on finding, engaging and retaining our valuable volunteers. Retiring volunteers are also part of succession planning. Participants will develop a clear succession planning process for their organization, including a calendar of steps. Be prepared to share ideas, experiences, tools and templates.
Authentic Fundraising and the Art of Asking
Dana Lipnicki, Ecology Action Centre
We all know that fundraising is a critical component of any group or organization. Despite this, most people feel uncomfortable when it comes to asking for donations to support the important work that they are doing in their communities.
In this workshop, participants will hear about a variety of fundraising methods, and learn tips and tricks to make asking easier. This workshop promises to be very participatory and attendees should expect to step outside of their comfort zones and ASK!
