    Please join us in welcoming this month's guest speaker Angie Hyche, as she presents her professional experience in organizing for non-profits.

    Description:

    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.

    Objectives:

    1) Attendees will understand why organizing services are especially helpful for nonprofits.

    2) Attendees will understand the benefits to their business of working with nonprofits.

    3) Attendees will understand the unique challenges of working with nonprofits and how to navigate these challenges successfully.

    4) Attendees will identify the individual life experiences, interests, skills, and passions that can help them determine which nonprofits would be a good match for their services.

    5) Attendees will develop a plan with specific actionable steps for choosing and beginning to work with nonprofits.

    Bio:

    Angie Hyche, CPO® has been an organizer & NAPO member since 2016. She lives in a small town in Northeast Tennessee called Kingsport. She worked in the fields of medicine and education before she finally got up the nerve to start her business, Shipshape Solutions. Angie loves speaking and writing about organizing as much as doing the actual work. She is the author of Unholy Mess: What the Bible Says about Clutter, which was published on Amazon in December 2020. For the past four years, she has written a monthly organizing column in two local newspapers and has appeared monthly on a local TV talk show. When she’s not organizing, Angie enjoys riding bicycle trails, hiking, group exercise classes at the YMCA, reading, and performing in community theatre.
