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 have the opportunity to attend 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, learn how their best practices can help you make improvements to your operations and discover useful tips and strategies about applying the standards in your organizations.

"Tish Mogan is a walking encyclopedia of nonprofit know how"

“The information provided during these sessions would be so helpful for any board member, new or seasoned!”

“What an amazing job Tish does with these workshops. This workshop should be mandatory for all Governing Board members in a non-profit. I believe all the information presented to us was important and needs to be communicated to all board members.”

The process is very straightforward, and the staff at PANO are a pleasure to work with!” – Nicolle Schnovel, Co-Executive Director, Berks Connections/Pretrial Services
