Do you know where you want your nonprofit to be in one year, or three years? Do you have a plan to get from where you are to where you want to be? If the answer is no, then you need to be in the next Kaleidoscope Concepts “Souper” Series workshop on Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Buffalo Mountain Room at the County Commons in Frisco. This workshop will give you the tools to articulate your strategy, to develop time lines and responsibilities, and to measure your results – ensuring your organization is as effective as possible. This workshop is for executive directors, board members and teams, and includes lunch and is sponsored in part by The Summit Foundation. For additional information or to register, call Judi at (970) 389-6470.
