Great webinar for board members!

General operating support is crucial to the health of a nonprofit, but today's economic challenges and social shifts require a close examination of special events as a way to secure that support. Many organizations underestimate the true costs of special event fundraising, and society is asking some tough questions about these costs. As ambassadors for any organization, board members should understand their role in ensuring necessary financial resources - this session will provide a deeper dive into understanding financial sustainability and the role events play.
