  • Recruitment and Retention of Volunteers at Nonprofit Organizations - April 7, 2017

    A significant element to the success of a nonprofit organization is its ability to attract and retain volunteers. As resources are often limited, volunteers can perform a variety of tasks vital to the organization at little or no cost. This is why it is important to identify and understand volunteer motivations as a way to develop effective strategies for recruitment and retention.


    When
    Date/Time: April 7, 2017,
    Friday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Location: McAllen Teaching Site

  • Board of Directors' Roles, Responsibilities, and Oversight - April 21, 2017

    There are a variety of roles and responsibilities that an individual takes on when he or she agrees to join a board of directors. A board of directors is a group of people legally charged with the responsibility to govern a corporation. This lecture reviews the roles and responsibilities for these individuals. In a for-profit corporation, the board of directors is responsible to the stockholders -- a more progressive perspective is that the board is responsible to all stakeholders, that is, to everyone who is interested and/or can be effected by the corporation. In a nonprofit corporation, the board reports to stakeholders, particularly the local communities which the nonprofit serves.

    When
    Date/Time: April 21, 2017,
    Friday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Location: McAllen Teaching Site

  • Project Management for Nonprofit Organizations - May 12, 2017

This lecture will discuss the unique set of challenges that project managers in the nonprofit sector face, as well as strategies to overcome these challenges.
