Upcoming Workshops for Nonprofits

Department of Labor Overtime Ruling: What Should Nonprofits Know?

Presented by:  Mary McClatchey, J.D., Worksmart and the Colorado Nonprofit Association
Friday, October 7, 2016
9:30 – 11:00am
Buffalo Mountain Room, County Commons, Frisco
Cost: FREE

This session will provide an overview of the newest Department of Labor ruling related to employee overtime and the considerations nonprofits must assume as they prepare and manage their organizational budgets related to employee cost. During this two way conversation, participants will have the opportunity to ask specific questions as they prepare to implement the rule.

Please RSVP* for the October 7th workshop here.

*Space is limited. We ask that no more than two representatives from your organization attend.


Andy Robinson Workshops

The Summit Foundation is excited to sponsor Andy Robinson, national trainer and speaker, who will be offering two workshops on November 10th in partnership with Community Resource Center. You can register for one or both sessions, details below.

Thursday, November 10, 2016
8:00am – 5:00pm
Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center
Cost: $55 Individual Session | $100 Full Day

Give Up on Your Board! An All-Staff Approach to Major Gifts Fundraising
8:00am – 12:00pm
Most development directors work heroically to get their board members engaged in face to face fundraising — with very mixed results. Yet we tend to forget about the other “human resource” available to us: the staff. Using successful case studies, we will discuss ways to engage employees in cultivating, asking, and thanking donors.

 

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up? Creating a Sustainable, Successful Organization
1:00pm – 5:00pm
What are the hallmarks of a successful organization? What benchmarks do you use to measure success — and how do you measure up? How can you look beyond the next grant cycle (or funding crisis) and design a sustainable nonprofit that grows, adapts, and thrives in a changing world? In this workshop, we will develop answers that address your specific needs and circumstances.

Register Here for one or both sessions.
