Please join us in welcoming this month's guest speaker Angie Hyche, as she presents her professional experience in organizing for non-profits.
In January of 2017, my small town of Kingsport, Tennessee began its centennial celebration. As a part of the celebration, individuals and businesses were encouraged to contribute with the phrase "What's Your 100?" as inspiration. I decided that I would volunteer 100 hours of professional organizing services in 2017 to nonprofit organizations in honor of the centennial. Throughout 2017, I volunteered for organizations as diverse as a dance studio, an 1850’s living history farm, and a girls’ after school running club. These organizing experiences were so meaningful to me and so helpful for growing the awareness of my new business that I decided to always include some volunteer organizing for nonprofits in my business plan.
Working with nonprofits has been extremely satisfying because I am able to use my skills to benefit groups that are doing great work. But I have also encountered special challenges that have put my organizing and people skills to the test. Nonprofits are unique organizations with unique challenges. In order to ensure success, it’s essential to address these special challenges strategically. In this webinar, I will share my experiences with you in order to help you navigate these challenges. The rewards you'll reap from this experience go far beyond any financial benefit you may gain.
