AllenCoLogos.jpg

 

Indiana United Ways is pleased to be able to partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne and the United Way of Allen County to continue to bring the Paul Clarke Leadership Series to the Greater Ft. Wayne Area.  

 

Who should attend this series?  Anyone in nonprofit, but particularly board members and potential board members

How do I get the most of out this series?  Attend every session yourself because you will find that the learning builds on what came before and prepares you for what is to come.

What is the cost?  Sessions are $35 each.  However, you can register for the June and July sessions at one time and enjoy a discount as these months represent 2-part sessions (though you do not need to attend both to participate, this approach is strongly encouraged). Major credit cards and Paypal are accepted through the online registration system (scroll to the registration buttons).

Where do the sessions take place?  All sessions take place at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne

What are the dates and times? All sessions begin promptly at 9:00 a.m., with doors opening at 8:30 a.m.  We recommend you arrive at least 10 minutes early to check in, get coffee, and to get a good seat.  Sessions conclude at 11:00 a.m.  A light breakfast of fruit, pastry, and coffee is served.

Dates are as follows:

  • February 1:  Next Level Leadership
  • March 1: Marketing Magic
  • April 5: Measure What Matters
  • May 3: From Paper to Practice - Strategic Plan Implementation
  • June 7: A More Productive Team, Part 1
  • July 5: A More Productive Team, Part 2
  • August 2:: Nonprofit Finance Demystified
  • September 6: Data in a Digital Age
  • October 4: Building a Strategic Board
  • November 1: Plan Your Potential
  • December 6: No More Bored Boards

How can I learn more about the topics and presenters?  Please see session descriptions and presenter information; February - May presenters are currently posted.  Additional presenters will be posted in the coming weeks.

I have registration questions or t.a. need help.  Whom do I contact?  Please contact IUW Outreach Manager John Ferguson at john.ferguson@iuw.org or call 317-660-8409 (office direct) for registration questions.  For questions about The Community Foundation Greater Fort Wayne, please contact Christine Meek, Director of Community Impact, at cmeek@cfgfw.org/260-426-4083.

How do I use this online registration system?   This system functions just like an online shopping cart for your favorite store: make your selection(s) and load your cart.  To "check out," you'll go to your cart (there will be a yellow square that says "cart" in the upper right hand corner of your screen) and follow the prompts to pay.  When you've completed the transaction, you'll get a confirmation email  Note that if you select the "Series Package Option" (meaning purchasing all the sessions in a series at one time), you will fill out your registration form as part of your check-out process.  If you want to purchase one or some of the sessions, you will complete and submit your registration form in order to get the link to load your shopping cart.  If you run into problems or just want someone to help walk you through the steps, give us a call at 317-660-8409!
