WebinarManaging Volunteers' Accident And Liability Risks

Date/ Time: Tuesday, May 6, 2014,  2:00-3:00 PM (EDT) 
Cost: FREE!
Location: Your Computer

Presenter: William Henry, Executive Director, Volunteers Insurance Service Association 

Accidents or charges of liability  involving volunteers not only cause physical harm, they also are a distraction, can damage staff and volunteer morale, hurt the organization’s reputation, and increase insurance costs. Learn how to identify your own risks, and manage them in a way that will work even as staff and volunteers come and go.  
Learn how to: 

  • Recognize common risks arising out of volunteer involvement in a nonprofit organization
  • Identify risk exposure specific to your own organization
  • Develop practical ways to minimize your organization’s risk and respond when incidents occur
  • Implement a risk management system that allows everyone in the organization to know what to do, and not have to improvise

WebinarThe Language of Impact: How Words Can Make the World a Better Place

Date/ Time: Wednesday, May 21, 2014,  3:00 PM Eastern/ 12:00 PM Pacific
Cost: $40 for Center Members (or other state associations); $50 for Non-Members
Location: Your Computer
Presented by: Erica Mills, Claxon Marketing, and the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits

This webinar is being hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits through a special partnership with the National Council of Nonprofits. Center for Non-Profits’ members can attend this presentation at the member rate.

If you are going to raise more money, engage more volunteers, serve more clients and increase your impact, every single person involved in your organization—board members, executive director, bookkeeper, development coordinators, program managers, finance directors, etc.—needs to know how to talk about your organization in a way that is consistent and compelling. This means investing in your words. Most of us go through 15,000 words a day so this isn’t about spending more money on doing something new. It’s about doing something you’re already doing in a new (and extremely effective) way. Erica Mills has taught thousands of organizations how to use language to make the world a better place. She’ll inspire you with her practical suggestions for increasing your impact by investing in your words.

Want to join us but cannot attend? Your registration includes a webinar recording that will be available for 30 days after the presentation.
