Introducing The Strategic Nonprofit Podcast
We want to proudly introduce you to The Strategic Nonprofit podcast, where we discuss all things related to Not-For-Profit Organizations. Join us for our monthly episodes, where expert guests join our hosts Tom Abbott and Trista McIver, to discuss all things NPO. Covering topics such as Board Governance, Strategic Planning, Recruitment & Retention, Increasing Membership, Fundraising, and even software to help run your NPO.
Our mission is pretty simple. It’s to help boards and staff come together in synergy. Quite often, there’s conflict or confusion about roles and responsibility. However, we believe that they’re all equal and that their roles complement each other. By bringing staff closer together, we help them with governance and strategic planning to better serve their communities and reach their all-important goals.
So if you’re a volunteer or a paid staff member or have an interest in the not-for-profit sector – this is the podcast for you. We’re going to cover every topic from advocacy issues, Conflict of Interest guidelines, Board Staff Relations, recording sufficient minutes, planning effective meetings, board appraisals and staff appraisals, you name it – we discuss it.
