Talent Development/Succession Planning Who is more interested in your own career than you? Who understands your talents and abilities and aspirations better than you? Although often regarded as an activity for businesses, succession planning is also very important for nonprofits to help ensure mission continuity and sustainability. Succession planning is also a useful way to provide a career path for others in your organization. There's never a wrong time to create a succession plan, and this topic will identify some of the key items you'll want to address when making a success plan for your organization.

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.

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.

Building Board Engagement Toward Enlightened Leadership – Combining Vision & Action to Move Your Organization Forward Effectively engaged Boards of Directors are strategic assets for the nonprofits they serve. Too often, however, Boards languish because of things like bad habits, historical baggage, or poor structure. Turning your board around or moving it from good to great takes time, and it is well worth the investment. This interactive session will bring forward common concerns, offer lessons learned, and spark new ways of thinking about how the Board can work better together -- among its members and with staff.

Redefining Your Value Proposition 
LISA JOHNSON MELANIE SCHMIDT
Techniques for Building Community Engagement Engagement has become today’s buzzword in the C-suite, but also the most feared word in management ranks. What if we engage the community and we don’t like what we hear? What if we don’t do anything differently - will the people we engage feel used? What if we don’t get the “right” people to show up? The important reason to engage the community is to turn outward to understand what the community is thinking and feeling about the issues you’re working on, and to determine public will for change. Learn about matching the variety of objectives you might have for engaging the community with a framework of techniques that will help you and your organization be successful as you prepare your organization to engage your community to reach out and set realistic expectations in the process. DEEDRA ATKINSON EVP of Community Impact and Strategy United Way of Dane County
The Secret to Revealing Your Inner Leadership The day-to-day chaos of communicating with stakeholders, responding to crises, and intensive efforts to advance your mission means it’s difficult to find time to reflect on building your leadership skills. This session will engage you in identifying leadership qualities and attributes, determining if you have those qualities, and build on your own existing skills to grow as a leader within your organization. MARK O'CONNELL CEO WI Counties Association
Managing Human Resources Without a Dedicated HR Professional Operating on a shoestring budget is what we do best. However, it often means your organization doesn’t have a human resources professional on staff. This session will detail strategic ways you can create HR processes designed to attract, develop, motivate, and retain productive, engaged employees. Leverage these HR processes to support your organization's strategy, goals, and culture. MATT SHEFCHIK QTI
Redefining Your Value Proposition: A Case Study on Rebranding This session takes a detailed look at how one nonprofit took on a rebranding process to survive and grow as a member-driven, statewide organization. Through this process, BioForward Wisconsin learned how to evaluate its value proposition for current and future members, including the changing market dynamics of the relevance of trade associations and understanding how the industry it served was evolving. Learn how BioForward determined how it needed to change to meet new market forces, including reviewing all aspects of the association and its name.

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.
