OKCNP to Offer Training June 6th at Lawton’s Center for Creative Living
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, the state’s leading provider of training, consultation and advocacy services for Oklahoma’s charitable sector, has invited nonprofit leaders to an important training, “Managing Through a Budget Crisis”, with Jerry Wright, Director of Community Engagement for Southern Oklahoma. The event will take place 9:00am-12:00pm at the Center for Creative Living in Lawton.
“With the uncertainty surrounding state and federal budgets, it is important for nonprofits to have a strategy and a plan to adjust to the changing financial landscape. Nonprofits who are planning for the challenges will not only survive, but thrive when the dark clouds of fear are overcome with strategic planning and new ideas for resource development. Leaders in the nonprofit sector must face the obstacles caused by scarce resources while continuing to provide much needed community services. When budgets get tight, the need for services still exists and often demand for those services increase. We hope to provide some answers for nonprofit leaders facing the challenge of budget shortfalls,” said Wright.
The training will take a look at how the ominous local or national economy can lead to fear, and sometimes paralysis, in the management of a nonprofit’s financial priorities. This three-hour training will assist nonprofit leaders and board members in managing through various stages of economic crisis, including managing through a downturn. Participants will gain skills and resources for setting and maintaining organizational priorities–and where to cut back–in the midst of uncertain economic times.
Members of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits receive a discounted registration rate of $50. Non-members may register for $100. Organizations interested in becoming members of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits or registering for training sessions can sign up online at www.okcnp.org.
Wright will be taking the “Managing Through a Budget Crisis” training to other communities in Southern Oklahoma. He will be in Ardmore on June 8th, Durant on June 15th, Ada on July 13th, Idabel on July 26th, Oklahoma City on August 11th and Tulsa on August 25th. Those interested in attending any of the training sessions should register here.
