All nonprofits, big and small, can find benefit in adopting an incremental, yet systematic approach for organizational improvement and pursuit of excellence.

In this half-day workshop, a team of nonprofit experts will guide you through the use of a valuable framework for pursuing excellence, SCANPO’s Guiding Principles & Best Practices (GP&BP).

This tool, developed by nonprofit leaders, professional advisors and volunteer experts, can be used within your organization to do the following:

  • Assess strengths and opportunities
  • Facilitate strategic decision making
  • Encourage conversation about critical board issues
  • Measure progress and celebrate accomplishments

Participants will also hear from Monroe Free, the executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County, the 2015 Award for Nonprofit Excellence recipient. He will reflect on how his organization has integrated the GP&BP into planning efforts and sustainable operations.
