Non-profit learning series discusses strategic planning

Thursday, May 12, 2011

The Putnam County Community Foundation has announced the fourth seminar in its 2011 Non-Profit Learning Series.

The workshop will take place on May 23 from 11a.m.-2 p.m. at the Inn at DePauw. The guest speaker will be Mike Stone, founder of Impact Strategies, who will be speaking on "Strategic Planning."

A strategic plan is only as good as the thinking behind it. How an organization arrives at its strategic priorities matters as much as what priorities are chosen.

Stone will answer three questions: What exactly is strategy?, How do you decide what is of strategic significance to an organization? and How do you make strategy "stick" once it is developed? Case-study examples and planning tools will also be provided.

The Non-Profit Learning Series is designed to enrich and advance non-profit associations, organizations, churches and units of government. The workshop is sponsored by the Hendricks Power Cooperative.

Cost is $15 in advance and $25 at the door. The cost includes the workshop, a catered lunch and all workshop materials. To register, persons may contact Dean Gambill in the Community Foundation office at 653-4978 or email
