Effective NPO Management - Workshops for NPO Management and Staff - August/September 2018

The demands on NPO staff and management seems to increase all the time. NPO leaders particularly are expected to "know something about everything" and sometimes even to have in-depth knowledge about a wide variety of fields.

Through a series of workshops we aim to assist management and staff of not-for-profit organisations to grow their skill and knowledge base and fill in the gaps. The sessions will be presented to small groups to ensure greater participation.

The first round of workshops will include Leadership, The Fundamentals of business and NPO management, Governance and NPO’s and, Introduction to Finance for non-financial NPO staff.

Venue:Ministry Centre, Fontainebleau Community Church, Cr Rabie and Fourth Ave, Fontainebleau, Randburg.  Google Maps: http://bit.ly/2w8xrGT
