OKCNP Partners with Muskogee’s Nonprofit Resource Center
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, the state’s leading provider of training, consultation and advocacy services for Oklahoma’s charitable sector, has partnered with the Muskogee Nonprofit Resource Center to provide training opportunities for nonprofit organizations in the Muskogee area beginning October 11, 2016.
All training sessions will be held at the Muskogee Nonprofit Resource Center, 207 N. 2nd Street, in Muskogee.
Training sessions include Fundamentals of Nonprofit Finance, Cultural Preservation and the Work of Nonprofits, 10 Best Practices for Great Board Performance, Social Media Basics for Nonprofits, and Standards for Excellence.
The training sessions kick-off on October 11, 2016 with Fundamentals of Nonprofit Finance. Nonprofit entities have their own unique rules for the preparation, auditing, accounting and reporting of their financial statements. At this workshop, organizations will walk through real nonprofit financial statements and reports that will help them understand the accounting rules, roles and responsibilities, and procedures and policies their nonprofit will need. This workshop is ideal for those new to the nonprofit sector, nonprofit finance, or a position as staff or board member.
On November 3, 2016, Cultural Preservation and the Work of Nonprofits will be offered. Organizations will discuss how to begin building coalitions in communities with various groups all with the goal of creating an atmosphere of collaboration. The session will explore how these collaborative groups can then conduct community development programs while also focusing on cultural preservation.
For those organizations struggling with their board of directors, they can attend the 10 Best Practices for Great Board Performance on January 26, 2017. In just four hours, they will walk away with tips, sample policies and templates, advice and the confidence they need to make their board a valuable asset to their mission, their organization and their staff.
Organizations looking to expand their marketing and promotion in social media can register for Social Media Basics for Nonprofits, which will be offered on February 28, 2017.
All organizations will be interested in attending the Standards for Excellence 2.0 training on April 18 & 19, 2017. Standards for Excellence is a nationally accredited curriculum that teaches best practices for nonprofit management, governance, and legal compliance. Standards for Excellence 2.0 includes expanded and enhanced benchmarks for nonprofit best practices, including 79 benchmarks for best practices; new sample policies in social media and information technologies all nonprofits need to know; and improved information on outcome based measurements and logic models to prove mission impact.
Organizations interested in registering for any of these training sessions can sign up online at www.okcnp.org. Questions can be directed to Anita Carwile, Director of Community Engagement for Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918-573-1900.
