Our new Breakfast Learning Series is an exclusive opportunity for those belonging to Donors Forum (grantmakers, operating nonprofits, and advisors) to do a quick dive into mutual topics of interest in an informal, networking-friendly atmosphere. The series will include panel discussions, short lectures, mini-workshops, and facilitated talks on a wide variety of topics. Join us on the last Wednesday of each month for coffee, conversation, and a culture of shared knowledge. Light refreshments will be served.

About this event: Your organization is ready to launch a new program or initiative, but exactly how do you get it launched and running smoothly? Our panelists will explore what you and your team will need to consider before taking those first steps toward implementation. There are many types of staffing options today -- all with varying degrees of risk and reward. Should you hire additional staff? Hire a consultant? Use current program staff? Or, in some cases, use volunteers?

Our panelists are experienced leaders in talent recruitment and management. The discussion will be moderated by Catherine Siebel, Program Evaluation Consultant and Co-President of the Association of Consultants to Nonprofits. We will first discern the external factors that come into play, such as the labor market for nonprofit professionals. We will then dig into what internal strengths your organization can bring to the project and how to uncover where gaps exist in your team. You will come away with a framework for building just the right team for the project.

This session is best suited to those with senior executive, chief development officer, or program director roles.
