    Meetings drive work in the social sector. We meet to plan, meet to discuss data, and meet to share information.  And yet the suggestion of a new meeting often leads us to wonder if meetings are time well spent as our work piles up around us. How can we make sure that the time we spend in meetings does not get in the way of serving our clients and communities?  How do we tie our meetings more purposefully to our work?  Join us for a webinar on February 7, 2017 as Stephanie Arcella and Bix Gabriel of Take Two Services Inc. share their tips for getting the most out of your meetings.

    Feb 16, 2017 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm  ET
    Webinar

    How a nonprofit interprets its mission has lasting impacts on its stakeholders, from clients to volunteers to staff.  It is important for nonprofits to interpret their missions with input from their stakeholders, in order to ensure that everyone understands their role within the organization and clients feel confident that services are framed around their needs.  But different stakeholders have different interests and concerns. What are some steps nonprofits can take when seeking to share their mission with these different stakeholder groups?  Join us for a webinar on February 16, 2017 as Stephanie Arcella and Bix Gabriel of Take Two Services Inc. share how to align your nonprofit’s value, culture, and plans for the future.
