If you want to be more effective working with others, you don't need better language skills, you need to learn to draw better maps.  Come join us to learn how on April 8 as Francisco Gonima presents the "Cross Cultural Competence" workshop. On April 9, Kathleen McCleskey defines terms associated with outcomes-based measurements and will take attendees through the entire evaluation process in easy-to-follow steps in the workshop "Measuring Program Outcomes".  Please mark your calendar and register today!  



The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 5, 2015. With hundreds of local nonprofits representing over a dozen counties, there is certainly a cause to fit your passion.  The Big Give S.A. is part of the national day of giving called Give Local America.

 Member Training 

BoardEffect is an online portal that streamlines board work and provides directors easy access to important information. Area Foundation Membership includes the use of this tool, which is accessible via computer or a free iPad app.  We encourage members to take advantage of this resource, because:

  • Creating your board packet becomes a simple task of dropping files into an online agenda, customized to fit the order of your board meetings;
  • Organizing meetings becomes simple with BoardEffect's RSVP tool -- administrators survey board members on dates that work for their schedules and then select the most popular date with one click;
  • Committee and board collaboration becomes streamlined with online discussion, live chat and voting tools.

We offer free training for members to learn how BoardEffect can help your board communicate and collaborate effectively and improve efficiency.  Training includes an overview and tour of the portal, tips for management and administration of BoardEffect, and a Q&A/practice session.

Our next member training date is Wednesday, April 8, 2015 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
