Please take a few minutes to provide me your feedback and let me know if any of these devices were beneficial to your professional development.

My last post: Blog Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants

As a bittersweet moment, this is my last post on this blog, for I'm leaving Aspiration to start my PhD in Nonprofit Leadership at the University of San Diego. I'll be hosting future Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants on my new Nonprofit Leadership 601 blog.

Thanks to all those who provided blog submissions this week!

Last Nonprofit Operations Brown Bag Lunch--Preparing for Employee Transition

As I am working to wrap things up here at Aspiration before I move to San Diego, I am taking steps to prepare for my replacement. Unfortunately, staff turnover is quite common in nonprofit organizations. Even though no one really wants employee turnover, I think as managers we need to create processes and be prepared when turnover occurs so things can continue to run smoothly in the organization.

If you are in the Bay Area, please join me for the last Nonprofit Operations Brown bag lunch to discuss, "Preparing for Employee Transition," on August 8, 2007.

Nonprofit Management Wiki

I really enjoy reading Rosetta Thurman's blog "Perspectives from the Pipeline". Rosetta writes engaging posts about nonprofit management and leadership. In addition, she just launched a nonprofit management wiki.

How do you manage your Board of Directors?

Recently I learned about BoardnetWork--a web based tool nonprofits can use to manage their Board of Directors. Each board member logs on to this website and can access key board information, read board meeting minutes, access board training resources, and find out when the next board meeting. This seems very useful, however I wonder how many boards are actually using this type of software?

Have you heard of the NP2020 Conference?

I recently learned that the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy will be hosting a conference called NP2020: Issues and Answers from the Next Generation

Basically this conference will be a discussion about how to address the leadership deficit that everyone keeps talking about.
