Alchemy in Action: The Role of the Nonprofit Strategist

Explore and celebrate the power and creativity of nonprofit financial leadership. This session will surface and describe the well-honed (if still somewhat hidden) practice of the nonprofit financial strategist — in all of its informed creativity — so we can learn from each other.

  • You’ll explore where the joy and creativity lie in your work as a nonprofit financial leader and celebrate the essential alchemy in this role done well.
  • Develop a shared understanding of what it takes to lead toward a more desirable financial future, even in risky operating environments.
  • Establish through example the financial importance of orientation, leverage points, communication, and alliance building, among other things.
  • Harvest the many grounded but dramatic stories that will help feed your fierce spirit, knowledge base, and capacity for strategic insight.

Also includes discussion around the use of reserves/flexible funds.
