Achieving Financial Resilience
Part 1: January 17, 2019 (12:00PM-1:15PM) Part 2: January 29, 2019 (12:00PM-1:15PM)


Organizations that are financially resilient have a comprehensive understanding of their financial health and are able to strategically anticipate future needs. In this two-part webinar series, we will explore the values, resources, and practices that are foundational to financial resilience, focusing on the board’s role in building a resilient organization. Participants will gain an understanding what it means to be financially resilient, how your organization stacks up, and strategies for becoming more resilient over time.

Specific elements to be covered:

  • culture of inclusion, transparency, and team-based decision-making process;
  • multi-year planning, scenario planning, and ongoing financial performance management;
  • balanced revenue mix and appropriate capital structure; and
  • building and maintaining adequate operating reserves, better known as Liquid Unrestricted Net Assets (LUNA).

Requirements for this session include some pre-reading as well as a self-reflection assignment to be completed between the two webinars.

Building a Strategic Planning Process that Works: A Two-Part Webinar to Foster Success
Part 1: February 20, 2019 (12:00 PM-1:15 PM) Part 2: February 26, 2019 (12:00 PM-1:15 PM)


Strategic planning documents are valuable, but it’s the actual planning process that really makes a difference in the quality of the end product.  How can you be sure that the time you spend building a strategic plan will provide you with the information you need to make good decisions in the coming years? This two-part webinar will help you decide how to structure your planning process for maximum effect. Topics covered will include different approaches to strategic planning, methods for gathering data to inform decision-making, ways to engage stakeholders effectively, and strategies for prioritizing goals and objectives. If your organization does not have a strategic plan (or is using an outdated plan), this webinar will get you ready to tackle the process.
