    Webinar Description

    There’s no shortage of reading material about how nonprofit boards of directors are supposed to operate. But when you are the paid or unpaid executive director or the board president who sometimes fills the role of executive director in an all-volunteer organization, you need to be more than book smart to successfully achieve the delicate balance of working for—and with—your board of directors. Join us to hear street smart advice from an executive director and all-volunteer board president as they offer best practices learned from their experience working with a board.

  • Live Webinar: Beyond the Spreadsheet: Finance and Organizational Priorities

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 12/12/2019 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    DEC. 12, 2019 | 3 - 4:15 PM EST | Beyond the Spreadsheet: Finance and Organizational Priorities is an AASLH continuing education event presented by speaker Becky Beaulieu on December 12, 2019. This webinar will help participants learn to identify financial priorities as they relate to institutional needs and goals. This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of online continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in the topic of financial management. This is StEPs Lab 19.

    Many of us recognize the utility of financial management, but struggle with how to best engage it with other organizational activities like strategic planning, operational needs related to programming and community engagement, messaging, and preparation for institutional change. This webinar helps participants foresee and tackle challenges of incohesive financial planning, such as fragmentation within the institution (the “silo effect”), lack of proper fundraising strategy, and potentially weak and even uncompliant organizational management.

    In this 75-minute webinar, instructor Becky Beaulieu, author of Financial Fundamentals for Historic House Museums (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017) will help participants learn to identify financial priorities as they relate to institutional needs and goals. She will also address building buy-in amongst internal and external stakeholders to best position your organization for financial stability and strong partnerships.

    This webinar is designed for participants of all levels, including staff, volunteers, and board members.
