Quick Nonprofit Community Survey
It’s April 2022 — two years since the world almost seemed to stop as a deadly virus hit home. As the rhythm of life seems to be accelerating, what does the new normal look like at your organization? You may be wondering the same thing about other local nonprofits.
Please take 3-5 minutes to tell us how your organization is emerging from this crisis.
No research or prep needed, no financials or headcounts requested.
Your perspective will allow us to share a snapshot of current local nonprofit trends, including remote, in-person and hybrid work, facility use, board meetings/operations and staff turnover.
Thank you! We look forward to sharing the results next month.

Securing the Future Conference:
April 20 – Cincinnati, OH

Leadership Council for Nonprofits is hosting its Securing the Future Conference noon- 4:30 p.m. on April 20, at the Hard Rock Casino in Cincinnati. Courageously Shaping the Future: Daring and Doing, the theme of the event, is focused on building resilience. Guest speakers include Pearl Alexander, Kim Anthony, Patrice Borders, Dr. Joan Ferrante, Teresa Gonzales and Diane Kinsella. A happy hour reception follows. 

We want to recognize board leaders
For most board members, board leadership roles come with a commitment and investment of time and resources to support a cause they care about. However, for the individual who steps up to serve as board president or chair, the role comes with the assumption of overall responsibility for the nonprofit and guiding the organization’s path forward.  

As we continue to share news of board leaders who have taken the helm, we encourage you to recognize and thank these individuals for tackling the role, because as a community member you recognize the value of his or her investment to help keep the sector strong.  

If you want to announce your organization’s new board leader, please send name, position and a head shot HERE.

We are open to other ways we can support and recognize board leaders. Send us your thoughts or tell us a story about a board leader who has made a difference in your organization. Share your ideas with Bryan Orander, president.
