Presented by Adam Roth, CEO of StreamLink Software

A 2013 survey conducted by StreamLink Software and the Axelson Center for Nonprofit Management uncovers how board members perceive engagement within their organizations.

In “Maximizing Board Engagement & Effectiveness,” we summarize what results revealed about the motivations and drivers of board members, outline the symptoms (and underlying causes) of board member complacency, debunk myths, and share steps you can take to increase engagement and future-proof your nonprofit board.

  • How Do Board Members Engage With The Organization’s Mission?
  • Do board members feel engaged, heard, and effective?
  • How Do Board Members View & Promote The Strategic Direction?
  • Discover how you can future-proof your board by better engaging today’s board and effectively recruiting tomorrow’s board.

NPT 2014 Best Nonprofits to work for

Are You Among the Best Nonprofits to Work for?

Here’s an opportunity to showcase the excellence of your nonprofit as a workplace.  We know of the great things you do for constituents and the community – but you probably do great things for your employees as well.

Here’s a brief description of eligibility and the assessment process, for complete information visit the website:   http://www.bestnonprofitstoworkfor.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

To be eligible for consideration, nonprofits must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year
  • Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c) 3 status*
  • Have a facility in the United States
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States**
  • An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary).  Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofit unless they are separate legal entities.

The assessment is a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit.  In part one, the employer completes a questionnaire and in part two, employees of the nonprofit complete an employee survey.

The collected information from the two instruments will be combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating nonprofits.

The registration deadline is October 11, 2013.

Nonprofits: A Chance to Do More with More

giftsHere’s a question that is fun to answer:  If you suddenly found $8,000 how would you put it to use?

We’ll let you think about that for a moment, before we ask the next question.

OK, next question:  What if your landlord said there was some extra space in your building and you were welcome to utilize the space any way you wished.  How would you use the space?  A much needed conference room?  A couple of new offices?  A staging area? Storage space?

JMT Consulting Group moved their business applications to the cloud and the result was they were no longer spending significant amounts on supporting a collection of on premise business solutions.  And, by ridding themselves of on premise solutions, they opened up more space in their office to better accomodate their team.  Here’s the full story:  What If You Didn’t Have a Server Room?

Based in New York, JMT Consulting Group is an Orange Leap Reselling Partner and has been serving nonprofits for over 20 years.
