Presented by: Tish Mogan, Standards for Excellence Director, PANO

Do you want to move your organization to the next level of effectiveness? Would you like to incorporate the latest “best practices” in nonprofit leadership and management and could use some support? Would you like to have the potential of raising more money because donors and funders are confident about the quality of your programs and you have evidence to prove it? Are you feeling like there is something more you could do to promote excellence in your organization? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, you won't want to miss the Standards for Excellence® Guiding Principles Webinar Series. You can pick and choose; attend one webinar or all six!


All webinars will include interaction with your peers, time to learn and practice how their best practices can help you improve your operations, and useful tips and strategies for applying the standards in your organizations.
