Workshop for Rowan County non-profit leadership set for June 11

SALISBURY — A special workshop for Rowan County non-profit leadership has been scheduled for June 11, a Wednesday, to help agencies strengthen their operations.
The free workshop is sponsored by the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation and will be presented by Trisha Lester, vice president of the Center for Nonprofits. Lester has presented several workshops for the foundation in years past and brings extensive experience to her presentations.
Lester has titled her remarks, “Deepening Strategic Alliances in Rowan County,” and she is presented by the foundation free of charge in Room 300 of the Center for the Environment at Catawba College.
The center has been host to several workshops in the past, and its location makes for a comfortable and attractive meeting site, according to the Robertson Foundation.
The workshop will run 9 a.m.-noon. Refreshments will be on hand for patrons to enjoy before the workshop begins.
In commenting on her presentation, Lester said there are a number of terms for the various alliances used by nonprofits as they go about their daily operations.
“Partnering, collaborating, cooperating and coordinating — whatever form your alliances with other organizations take,” Lester said, “They are all a must-do.
“Resources are limited, and funders are especially concerned about potential duplication. How can nonprofits in Rowan County partner with each other in strategic ways to benefit the community and expand their mission impact? Rowan nonprofit leadership — executive directors/CEOs, board members and program staff — are invited to dialogue about ways to deepen and strengthen these alliances.”
The workshop is free, but registration is encouraged. Acceptance emails should be sent to tlester@ncnonprofits.org.
