What’s Your Nonprofit’s Strategy?

There is no better time than right now to re-visit your nonprofit’s strategy and strategic direction. Whether you have a blueprint already established or are just beginning the process to re-evaluate the past year and plan for the future, the expert panelists will give you tactics and tips to help you determine what you need to do and important considerations. They will also give you ideas on what to avoid in your planning.
