Connecticut Humanities kicks off a series of workshops for Connecticut nonprofits in January 2015. No matter the size of your organization, or where it is developmentally, you are welcome to join your peers and learn from experts in the nonprofit industry. Workshops will cover a variety of topics, including: strategic planning and leadership, audience building, and nonprofit management.

The first workshop is a day-long program on Wednesday, January 21, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. The morning session will address strategic planning for nonprofit organizations. The workshop will be facilitated by Connecticut Humanities' Manager of Grants and Programs, Scott Wands and Connecticut League of History Organization's (CLHO) Liz Shapiro and will include: terminology and elements of the planning process, the sequence of the planning process, ways to make your strategic plan stick, and methods for evaluating the effectiveness of your strategic plan.

The afternoon session features two special guests, Anne W. Ackerson and Joan H. Baldwin, authors of the book, Leadership Matters. Ackerson and Baldwin believe leadership can happen anywhere, at any level of an organization. They share the characteristics of successful leaders and discuss how successful leaders integrate work, home, the wider community, and their private lives.

The workshops will all take place at the Connecticut Historical Society at One Elizabeth Street in Hartford. Each workshop will be inexpensive, enlightening, and fun. Join us for a day of expanding your skills and meeting your colleagues. Register now at:

The next workshop is scheduled for February 23rd. More details coming soon!
