RevJen Group is thrilled to partner with renowned author and nonprofit consultant Amy Fass to deliver meaningful learning to social sector leaders through our Sixty Minute Strategies series. Amy is the author of “The Business of Nonprofit-Ing,” Executive Director of Shoes That Fit, and a nonprofit consultant. She has worked in nonprofit management and development for over 20 years.
In her session entitled “What the World Gets Wrong About Nonprofits (and what to do about it),” Amy will explore the countless misconceptions about nonprofits — many of them contradictory — that leave nonprofit leaders hard-pressed to navigate the sector at large.
This practical session will:
- Debunk seven myths and misunderstandings that nonprofit leaders face, and explain why it is so important to be able to refute these narratives.
- Provide valuable perspective and awareness of the larger nonprofit sector — its importance and breadth.
- Give attendees the confidence to understand and respond to misconceptions when they arise.
Join Amy Fass and Sixty Minute Strategies host Andrew Smith on March 30 at 2 PM CT by reserving your spot here.
