Workshop on Nonprofit Lifecycles Offered November 01

The Free Press WV

Nonprofit organizations can learn how to strengthen their capacity today and plan for success tomorrow at the Nonprofit Lifecycles Workshop, November 01, from 12:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Ohio Valley University in Parkersburg. The workshop is sponsored by the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and Regional Affiliates, Nonprofits LEAD, and the West Virginia Nonprofit Association (WVNPA) and will be led by Maria Fibiger, Certified Master Consultant of the Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute and President/Senior Consultant of the Three Dog Consulting.

Based on Susan Kenny Steven’s widely popular book, Nonprofit Lifecycles, this workshop will provide a practical way for nonprofits to think about strengthening their organizational capacity, no matter what their age or size. Using Lifecycles Stages to describe the predictable growing pains nonprofits experience at each stage of development, Fibiger will share concepts that are especially relevant to board members, executive staff, and other organization leaders. Nonprofits will learn how to self-assess their organization’s management, governance, financial resources, and administrative components as the vital support systems for their important mission and programs.

Turnover of Board, executive staff, volunteers is an inevitable event (planned or emergent) in the Lifecycle of any organization, and nonprofits should prepare for these transitions with good succession planning. At the workshop, Fibiger will discuss fundamental pieces that every organization should have in place to make the transition easier, as well as barriers and challenges that may come up in any turnover scenario. This interactive workshop will explore a framework for succession planning, and will equip nonprofit leaders with real-world knowledge & tactics.

Cost to attend is $20 per person ($15 per person for WVNPA members). Organizations are encouraged to bring Board/staff teams to participate.
