We’ve learned through the past two years with the COVID-19 pandemic and Hurricane Ida that nonprofits must continually think and act strategically to keep pace with the speed of change. Ongoing strategy development can help nonprofit leaders stay ahead of trends, see things in new ways, and quickly move from analysis to action, leading to results.

This session is designed for executive and board leaders. Session topics will include:

  • The difference between ongoing strategic thinking and strategic planning.
  • How to develop an organization wide strategic framework for more dynamic and responsive planning.
  • Naming strategic priorities, framing strategic questions, and establishing strategic goals based on your organization’s purpose and desired impact.
  • Identifying the roles of the executive director and the board in strategy.

Date and Cost

The session will be held in-person at the Greater New Orleans Foundation (919 St. Charles Ave.) on Wednesday, November 16th from 9:30-4:00 pm, lunch will be included. The fee for this session is $70.00. Click here to register.
