Show Me The Money in Santa Cruz

The California Association of Nonprofits (CAN), in partnership with the Community Foundations of Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, are presenting Show Me the Money, a one-day conference on nonprofit finance practices.

The conference -- which will be held one week from today: Thursday, May 4, 2006 -- is designed to help you:

* Manage your finances.
* Enhance your human resources.
* Align management with mission.
* Get the inside scoop on policies impacting the way you work.

I won't be able to be there due to other obligations, but I've been to several CAN conferences in the past (both as participant and as a presenter) and they're always informative and fun events.

Our tendency in the nonprofit sector is to put a low priority on our own professional development. We tell ourselves that we simply don't have the time or the money. But we pay the price anyway in burn-out and staff turnover (more about this tomorrow). A few dollars spent on conferences and workshops is a direct investment your organization's future that continues to pay dividends long after the seminar is over.

See CAN's web site for more information and registration.
