About Strategic planning in Nonprofits
Is strategic planning on your organization's radar? Do you need to clarify the strategic direction of your organization and the strategies that will be used to achieve your vision while also ensuring organizational health and sustainability? If you answered yes, join this workshop that will set you on the path to developing a plan that doesn't sit on a shelf collecting dust! Strategic planning aligns your people and resources around a plan to achieve your mission.
The workshop will be anchored with Strategic Planning in Nonprofits (SPiN), a toolkit developed by Washington Nonprofits to make strategic planning accessible and manageable for you, your board, and your staff.
