The day will include a tailored nonprofit finance training building on the concepts presented in the webinars and facilitated dialogue about the state of the field and prevailing issues effecting State Chapters’ future development, financial health and operating performance.  Content and dialogue will be built around the following guiding questions: 

  • What are the characteristics of a stable and sustainable business model and capital structure that will support the mission, impact and success of State Chapters?
  • What types of human, social, intellectual and financial capital already exist in the field? What resource does the field lack, and what are opportunities to build or access those resources?
  • What are opportunities for growth and development among the Chapters that support greater adaptive capacity and longer-term sustainability?
