Program 10:00-12:00 PM

Scandals in the nonprofit sector make people worry that charitable donations will not be put to good use, and tarnish the image of the entire nonprofit community.   More than ever, nonprofits must operate with integrity and must instill confidence in clients, funders, volunteers, watchdog groups and others.  The issue of public trust in nonprofit organizations is crucial for our survival and sustainability.  This seminar will discuss best practices in the areas of transparency, accountability and ethics, and how we can best operate our nonprofits in a trustworthy way. 

Topics will include:

·         Applicable state and federal rules that promote accountability, including disclosure and reporting obligations

·         Organizational policies, such as conflict of interests and whistleblower policies, that foster accountability

·         The role of the board

·         Other recommended practices to foster an environment of integrity

·         Nonprofit oversight and watch-dog agencies

Author Event with Anne Farrow

In 1757, a sailing ship owned by an affluent Connecticut merchant sailed from New London to the tiny island of Bence in Sierra Leone, West Africa, to take on fresh water and slaves. On board was the owner’s son, on a training voyage to learn the trade. The Logbooks explores that voyage, and two others documented by that young man, to unearth new realities of Connecticut’s slave trade and question how we could have forgotten this part of our past so completely. 

About the author:

A journalist in New England for 30 years, much of that time at The Courant, Farrow was a lead writer on The Courant’s prize-winning investigations into slavery in Connecticut, and the co-author of the book Complicity: How the North Promoted, Prolonged, and Profited from Slavery, published by Ballantine Books in 2005.

    Contact: Madhu Gupta   860-447-1411 x 3   mgupta@plnl.org
   

“Brand is the difference between a cup of coffee and a cup of Starbucks”

You (and your nonprofit) have a different “brand” for everyone you work with: clients, donors, community leaders, funders, etc. Even your staff and board members have assigned a “brand” to the organization, and they aren’t necessarily the same.

We’ll ask (and answer) three questions at this workshop:

  1. What is a brand, after all?
  2. What do you think is your organization’s brand for your key constituencies, and is that the one you want them to see?
  3. How do you get to the brand you want? 

We’ll discuss the elements of branding, how your audiences differ in their perceptions (and why that matters), the more authentic but less discussed techniques of branding, and some of the formal aspects of branding. 

Please sign up early to receive short thought provoking articles on branding that will be discussed at the workshop. 

Presenter: Rick Schwartz (www.SchwartzTalk.com)  has worked closely with  charitable people, foundations and nonprofits for 40 years.

A dedicated group of professionals from the fields of law, academia, business, religion and corrections took a unique approach to the problem of mass incarceration in Connecticut and the United States. They wrote a book--together. And they want to share their findings with you.

Hear from one of the authors how this process took place, what concerns you should have as a citizen and taxpayer--where is your money going? what is it doing? are communities safer? are we being smart on crime or simly paying lipservice to being "tough" on crime? Take this opportunity to engage in a conversation about one of the most important civil rights issues of our time in the 21st century.
