Dayton SCORE will kick off the Fall Nonprofit Workshop Series with the training “A New (and even better) Approach To Your Organization’s Strategic Planning Process”.  If you are a Nonprofit Executive Director or Board member who is preparing to develop a strategic plan for your organization in Q4 or 2023, we highly encourage you to attend this workshop (yes, even if you have attended in the past!). During this SCORE training, participants will learn the steps to take BEFORE the strategic planning process begins, the methodology for implementing a Plan that will ‘achieve outcomes’ and not just sit on a shelf. In addition, participants will come away with an understanding of the importance of “strategy vs planning” that will help them create a successful Plan for their organization. REGISTRATION
