LACF announces 2021-22 non-profit training program
The Los Alamos Community Foundation (LACF) offers three in-depth training workshops designed to build the organizational capacity of nonprofit organizations in the region.
The workshops will initially be held virtually and will be hybridized if possible and will last approximately three hours (including discussion, breakout sessions and breaks).
- Creation of financial visuals for your non-profit organization
- Wednesday October 13, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Presenter: Frank R. Lopez (Virtual)
Every association leader uses financial information to make decisions. Board staff and officers regularly review the financial statements. This interactive workshop will guide leaders of nonprofits in developing charts and tables to make your finances stand out. Whether you use this visual financial data for internal purposes (like board meetings) or external (like a grant application), being able to present your organization’s financial information more clearly and effectively will enable your audience to better understand your work. .
- Diversity Equity and Inclusion Practices for Nonprofits: A Community Conversation
- Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. * This workshop is FREE (prior registration required)
- Presenter: Ian Esquibel and local non-profit leaders (Virtual – can be adjusted to hybrid if needed)
Diversity, equity and inclusion are intrinsically linked, but are also distinct concepts. DCI is important in the workplace, especially in New Mexico where we have many diverse populations, and our work often involves community engagement that will impact diverse communities. This is an interactive workshop designed to help you assess where your organization is at in its diversity, equity and inclusion work, and to help you chart the path your organization would like to take.
- HR policies, hybrid work and technology – Oh my God!
- Tuesday March 15, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Presenter: Kari Sutton (Virtual – can be adjusted to hybrid if appropriate)
Technology is increasingly integrated into our lives and daily business. This session will explore the intersection of technology and HR. How can organizations effectively manage telecommuting employees? How do you design policies to accommodate employees working on corporate devices or personal devices? How can you modernize your HR-related record keeping and digitally secure documents containing sensitive personal information? This class is intended for those who manage the operations and use of technology within their organization, as well as all leaders of organizations with remote or hybrid employees.
Non-profit organizations are encouraged to send 2-3 participants, including senior managers and / or board members. The cost is $ 50 per workshop (January 20e the workshop is free). The workshops will be facilitated by Groundworks New Mexico. For full workshop descriptions, presenter biographies and / or to register, visit About the Los Alamos Community Foundation:
