The Wood Buffalo Community Building Project aims to increase organizational and leadership capacity of nonprofit organizations by offering value-added workshops on topics such board governance and strategic planning. You are invited to attend two fantastic value-added workshops:
1) Transforming Nonprofits Through Technology Planning Workshop: Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011 (8:30 am – 4:30 pm)
We use technology every day and yet we rarely take the time to find out how it can help us fulfill our mission and improve operations. On November 22nd the Wood Buffalo Community Building Project invites you to spend a day with a leading facilitator from IBM Canada with expertise in the nonprofit sector, to create a plan that will help your organization use technology to your advantage. The workshop is specially tailored for nonprofits in Wood Buffalo who are considering co-location or shared services opportunities or are willing to learn how to get the most out of the technology they have. Small shop or large, this workshop will be well worth it!
