2020-2021 Nonprofit Training Program
During our 2020-2021 session, LACF and United Way of Northern New Mexico are partnering to offer local nonprofits three in-depth training workshops designed to build organizational capacity in the wake of the pandemic. Each workshop will be held virtually and will be approximately three hours long (including discussion, breakout sessions and breaks).
Nonprofits are encouraged to send 2-3 participants to each workshop, including senior staff and/or board members. Tickets are $50 per organization per workshop. A discounted package deal is available which includes access to all three sessions for $100.
Nonprofits will leave each workshop with an immediately usable, measurable action plan. Included in the ticket price is access to a follow up session which will be held 4-6 weeks after the workshop, designed to keep each organization on track to accomplish its plan.
Workshops will be facilitated by the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.

Leading a nonprofit organization requires many skills but foremost among them is the ability — through rigorous strategic planning and leadership — to articulate a clear and compelling vision and to systematically organize people and resources to realize that vision. This workshop is applicable to nonprofit leaders and reviews key principles and practices of strategic planning, providing an overview of the process and sharing tools and techniques that can be used at each stage. This timely workshop will help with re-building and re-tweaking an existing strategic plan, or developing a new plan, to guide your organization out of this unique pandemic time period. The workshop will also provide strategies and guidance for nonprofit leaders to ensure that strategic plans become living documents in their organizations, through alignment with existing structures and processes, frequent communication, and effective continuous improvement systems and practices.

Board Governance for Effective Leadership
Wednesday, April 7, 2021
9:00am – 12:00pm

As volunteer leaders, board members play an important role in the success of the organization. Boards have significant legal and ethical responsibilities to their constituents, staff, and communities. This session builds on the knowledge gained in the March 18 strategic planning workshop and will explore board member roles in implementing the strategic plan during the pandemic and into the new normal. If board members are unclear about their responsibilities and boundaries, the strategic plan will be far more difficult to implement. We will talk about effective governance by defining the board’s basic roles and responsibilities, knowing that strong boards gain credibility, provide access to the community and resources, and serve as effective advocates.
