Reopening Roundtable Sessions
Hosted by: Jenn Clemo and Allison Adcox, NAO
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on our organizations. There is much to consider and plan for as we bring staff back to the office, open our doors once again to the public, meet in-person with donors and funders, and deliver in-person programming. In this two-hour convening hosted by NAO, participants will discuss factors for an effective return to in-person work across three key areas: People & Facilities, Programs & Events, and Outreach & Communications.
Each session will be held in-person from 1 – 3 p.m. For more details and registration information, choose the city closest to you:
Get Ready for a Disaster: Information and Tools to Help Nonprofits Prepare For Bad Events
Tuesday, July 13, 10 – 11:30 a.m. PT | Presenter: Nancy Bacon, Nancy Bacon Consulting
You work hard to run programs and solve problems. You are focused on your work, not on getting ready for that disaster that might happen. You intend to do the right thing, yet limitations on time, funding, and technical knowledge can get in the way of getting your organization ready for something bad to happen. This online course is designed for nonprofit executive directors and board members so you can operationalize disaster preparation within your organization. This session walks participants through the why, what, and how of making their organizations more resilient when facing natural or viral disasters. More details and registration information here.
