Christa Hood, CPA, and Jenna Frosio, CPA, of Askey, Askey & Associates, CPA, LLC will lead a free, virtual workshop for nonprofits to learn about adjusting strategies to keep up to date during a pandemic.

How can a nonprofit adjust its thinking and strategies to keep up? It is already increasingly complicated by the rapid change brought about by advances in technology and shifting economic and demographic patterns. And now it is further complicated by a world-wide pandemic.

This course helps nonprofits identify the pressures and strains the organization is feeling in connection with changes in the external environment.

Participants will be forced to think about how the organization is dealing with theses pressures — or identify if the organization is not dealing with the strain.

The instructors will summarize the categories that emerge and facilitate discussion of other kinds of responses to accommodate unavoidable change. The course will cover approaches to reconfiguring strategic planning, management operations, use of technology, and fundraising to maximize the organization’s health, even its survival.

Managing in Today’s World: Fiscal Clarity  is sponsored by the Nonprofit Institute at CSM. Registration is open on the institute’s website. The seminar will be held via Zoom  … October 20, 2020, 9 am to 12:30 pm.
