LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ (October 2, 2012)…. More than 100 non-profit executives, board members and staff filled the dining room of Greenacres this morning for a seminar entitled “Managing Change … through many stages of the nonprofit lifecycle.” Presenter John Brothers, Principal of Cuidiu Consulting, delivered the important message that non-profit leaders – both executive staff and board members – must routinely navigate changing and competing interests. Technological innovations, globalization, and a devastating recession have challenged organizations to be creative and to do more with less. In times of uncertainty, leaders must know how to focus organizational energy to be successful.
Borden Perlman Salisbury & Kelly sponsored the seminar as part of its mission to support the not-for-profit community and lend its expertise to help strengthen strategies for thoughtful, structured, and deliberate work.
