Alliance for Nonprofit Management Conference, Grand Rapids, Michigan – August 10, 2012
Today is day two of the Alliance conference. I was recently asked to serve on the Alliance board whose mission is to improve the capacity of professionals involved in building the capacity of the nonprofit sector.
There have been good sessions with some ideas I will bring home for Foraker. As important, I have been able to re-connect with Terry Horton, former Foraker staff member who now serves as a consultant with the Johnson Center at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids.
Today's smidgen of insight is that all organizations are struggling with their business model and with evaluation. The Alliance is comprised of many of the most respected thought leaders in the sector, yet they, too, struggle with these issues for their association.
So don't despair – persevere. If you have not read the latest newsletter article on evaluation, please do. After speaking to the thought leaders here that read it, they told me that it generated much conversation in their circles.
