West Virginia Nonprofit Association
Transforming West Virginia’s Nonprofits
May 5, 2015
10 AM to 2 PM
Holiday Inn, Martinsburg
No Charge, but must pre-register
Nonprofits are viewed by investors and donors as mission-driven organizations, and the evaluation of success focuses on a nonprofit’s impact in the community. Though mission driven, nonprofits are business enterprises as well, with business models that make programs and organizations operate and succeed. As nonprofit leaders, it is our responsibility to ensure that nonprofits in West Virginia transcend public scrutiny ensuring purpose of mission, ethical practices, accountability and transparency. During this series of regional gatherings, nonprofits will come together for dialogue and discussion around guiding principles in the unveiling of West Virginia’s Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence and the future of the nonprofit sector in the Mountain State.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
All Nonprofit leaders, staff, and volunteer board members.
WV PRINCIPLES & PRACTICES FOR NONPROFIT EXCELLENCE
West Virginia’s nonprofit organizations provide a wide variety of valuable services and products that are essential to communities across the state. The success of nonprofits is often dependent upon public confidence and support. The West Virginia Nonprofit Association, in partnership with Dr. Susan Aloi of West Virginia Wesleyan College and a team of stakeholders, has developed a set of Principles & Practices to serve as a model for West Virginia nonprofit organizations to guide their operations and practices, enabling them to meet their missions. These principles provide benchmarks to help an organization evaluate how efficiently and effectively it is working towards its mission.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR WEST VIRGINIA’S NONPROFITS?
Communities throughout West Virginia are having deep conversations about our state’s future by asking What’s Next for WV? The same applies to the nonprofit sector, and in this session we bring nonprofit leaders and representatives together to allow for fresh, innovative thinking to emerge on the future of West Virginia’s nonprofit sector and help us move from dialogue to action planning.
