Mission Myth: Using the New Normal to Get Ahead

Things will never be the same for nonprofits (or for-profits for that matter!). The unpredictable economy, never-ending politics and cautionary tales of organizations gone awry mean that everyone - including donors - are paying more attention than ever before.

 

The good news? It's the perfect opportunity for us to stand out and get ahead. We get there by getting down to business. We get there by busting the Mission Myth, the romantic but false idea that our beloved mission alone leads to success. To truly triumph, we must work like a business. The kind of business that operates in healthy, effective ways. The kind that avoids the drama and focuses on what truly matters.

 

Through best practices, humorous anecdotes and proven tips learned the hard way, Deirdre Maloney will use her personal brand of mild audacity to help you bust the Mission Myth, exceed your goals...and sleep better at night.

The Great Paradox: Boards and Fundraising It’s time to get real when it comes to boards and fundraising…which, for many of us, is some tricky, tricky business. While most everyone agrees that boards need to play a role in the bottom line, the harsh truth is that passion for the mission doesn’t mean board members will automatically enjoy fundraising…or be very good at it. How to realistically help board members find true success? What kind of accountability really works? And how can board members use all of this back at their own offices? This session will cover it all. Based on true stories from the field, Deirdre Maloney will provide a practical framework and real-life tips on how to create and execute a fundraising strategy for the board – one that creates energy and eases the tension for all involved. DEIRDRE MALONEY President Momentum LLC
Cyber Security Cyber attacks are fast, frequent, and furious, and criminals don’t think twice about whether you’re a nonprofit organization or a for-profit business. Learn about what you can do to prevent fraud, protect valuable donor information, and secure your external and internal access to sensitive information. In this mission-critical session, Dawn Wilcox will also share specific examples of the latest fraud attempts, such as phishing and identity takeover, and provide a framework for your security policy. DAWN WILCOX Director of IT Security & Compliance, Information Technology First Business Bank
Becoming a More Effective Board Member Serving on a nonprofit board is an honor, a responsibility, and a lot of work. Knowing the rules of the road for Boards in general is one milestone on the journey to becoming more effective, as then learning the signs for when things are working and when they could be improved. What should you ask before you accept the nomination and what can you do once you’re on board to make your service of greater value to the organization – and yourself! This session lays the groundwork with statistics, trends, and best practices and then offers building blocks for things you can do to become a better Board member as part of a building a stronger Board. MELANIE SCHMIDT President Timpano Group (aka Timpano Consulting)
Shifting Your Social Media Mindset: Focusing on ENGAGING Your Community Through Social Media and Leaving the Numbers Behind Social media is often used just for the latest fundraiser or volunteer recruitment and the differences in personal and business pages can be confusing. Let’s SHIFT our mindset in the way we use nonprofit social media pages and focus on ENGAGING our community, rather than continuously asking them to give? We will discuss the necessary steps needed in social media for organizations to leverage their mission and find the loyalty everyone is looking for. This workshop will not only help get those creative juices flowing but give you the tried and true tips to make community engagement on social media work for your team.

How and Why Does a Peer-to-Peer Roundtable Work? For the past six years, nonprofit executives have met in a peer-to-peer roundtable to discuss topics of concern to them. During this time the roundtables have addressed numerous concerns that have helped grow the local nonprofit community in a cooperative, collaborative way. Learn more about the value of the Nonprofit Roundtable from the facilitator as well as 3 or 4 participating executives. One panelist said “I cannot say enough about the positive impact I’ve experienced through networking facilitated by the nonprofit roundtable.” JOHN ROGERS Business Roundtable Facilitator Panelists Scott Kuehn, Technical Talent Acquisition Coordinator, Bemis Manufacturing Wendy Schmitz, Supervisor, Friends of Senior Activity Center of Sheboygan Vicky Schneider, Operations Manager, Plymouth Intergenerational Coalition/Generations Tanya Taylor, Product Specialist, Aurora Health Care
Step Up Your Planned Giving - Tools for Success for Board Members Planned giving; moving donors up the ladder of giving; prioritizing your efforts; telling your story to maximize gifts. During this session you will learn what to stop doing, what to start doing, where to find overlooked (but good) prospects and how to work with others to get the job done. VALERIE JOHNSON CEO Habitat for Humanity - Dane County
Strategically Using Technology to Grow Your Nonprofit Organizations are always looking for new or better ways to save money, be more efficient and add value. The strategic application of technology can be an effective way to meet these goals. This session reviews how to plan, prioritize, implement and evaluate technology changes in your organization. ERIC OSTERMANN President Badger Bay Management Company
Toward Enlightened Leadership: Combining Vision & Action to Move Your Organization Forward Once you know the basics of roles and responsibilities, successful Board engagement hinges on clear direction and functional dynamics. This highly interactive session offers insights for decoding leadership to get at what really matters and how that plays out in nonprofit Board dynamics, poses questions that prompt you to understand what you offer beyond your obvious skills, and provides tools for shared discovery among Board and staff that will move your nonprofit toward greater effectiveness.

Engaging Volunteers to Transform Donor Relations

 

 

One of the key elements to any successful fundraising effort is the active

engagement of community leaders in your organization. When extraordinary

volunteers truly partner with non-profit leaders they will help to propel your

fundraising efforts (and your organization) to a new level.

 

Together, we will explore and learn some fundamental principles on how to create, build and maintain effective volunteer and staff relationships. We will also learn from three community leaders in Northeast Wisconsin who will participate in a panel discussion and share their insights, hints for success and lessons they have learned over the course of their extensive fundraising efforts.

2016 RECAP
Thank you for bringing such a variety to these conferences. This is my third year and I've come to look forward to this conference. The event was very affordable and offered a variety of important information for both board membership as well as business owners. I found the keynote speaker, John Trybus, to be excellent and extremely inspirational. Every breakout session I attended was great. I learned useful information that I can take back to my organization. The keynote speaker was fantastic. I could have listened to him all day. I'm eager to take this info back to my organization! As a board member, I think this will help. Topics and speakers were great and relevant to my work. Also loved the networking opportunities. Very knowledgeable presenters and great information. I enjoyed the breakout sessions. They were very appropriate to my needs. I also liked the ability to network with all of the other non-profits. Great insight for a new board member. Made it easier to learn the structure and expectations in my new role. The breakout sessions provided were very welcomed information and guidance. This event was affordable, conveniently located and there were great breakout sessions that covered a variety of topics. The food was also amazing! I would certainly attend another event in the fall or next spring.

JOIN NORTHEAST WISCONSIN LEADERS AT THE 2017 ENTERPRISING NONPROFITS EVENT - APPLETON EVENT

APPLETON, WI – May 11, 2016 – First Business is pleased to present the 3rd Annual Enterprising NONPROFITS networking event in partnership with the Volunteer Center of East Central Wisconsin and Insight Publications.

 

The event will be taking place on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton. This all-day interactive conference allows for-profit and nonprofit business leaders, executive directors, business development directors and volunteer coordinators to collaborate and share best practices.

This year’s line-up includes keynote speaker John D. Trybus, APR® who will present “The Future of Social Impact Storytelling: What Will Change and What Won’t?” Everywhere you turn within the social impact sector it seems that practitioners are talking about storytelling. And for good reason. Effective organizational stories are powerful. They have the ability to not only drive emotional connections with target audiences but also have been proven to persuade people to take real action, such as to donate or volunteer on behalf of a beloved cause.

 

After the keynote, the day will be broken down into breakout sessions in the morning, early afternoon, and late afternoon. The morning breakout sessions topics are: Creating Strategic Stories That Bring Impact to Life, The Hidden Success Factors of Fully Sustainable Organizations, Are You Hoping or Planning to Flourish, and Becoming a More Effective Board Member. After lunch, the sessions include: QuickBooks Like a Pro, Telling Your Story Effectively, Prospering Through Business Philanthropy, and Building Better Board Engagement.
