Objective of the conference: You will explore the uniqueness of not-for-profits, including their specific and unique ways of governance, identifying and satisfying stakeholder needs, focusing on purpose and assessment of their work.
This non-profit management one day conference will review the unique mission, purpose and vision of the not for profit sector and its relationship to contemporary Canadian social structures. It will examine aspects of governance, the measurement of outcomes, metrics that make sense, defining and engaging multiple stakeholders, and encouraging attendees to apply this knowledge to their own individual contexts.
In an age of economic and fiscal restraint, every level of government is seeking to restrain public expenditure on what has been considered over the last 70 years as appropriate entitlement. As the relationship between governance, not for profits, public philanthropy, and personal altruism change, it is important that not for profits anticipate and frame that new narrative so that they can continue to serve their existing and future clients.
This non-profit management conference is for directors, board members, pastors, financial officers, and others who are leaders in a non-profit organization. Both dialogue and praxis, based upon discussion with both thinkers and practitioners, and grounded in the realities of the participant’s own context will shape the time together.
