In recognition of National Aboriginal History Month we wanted to take a moment to reflect on our reconciliation journey to date. Vantage Point recently established a Reconciliation Task Force with the goal to guide and support our efforts in reconciliation.
Access Vantage Point’s not-for-profit board experts as you work to revise, update, and create your organization’s board policies! Over one full day, two Vantage Point experts will spend the day with you and provide a brief overview of different board policy documents and practices applicable to BC not-for-profits.
A highly effective and engaged board has clarity around roles, responsibilities and aligns their work and performance with organizational values and vision. This workshop focuses on board members’ key responsibilities and moves boards out of operations and into the “big picture.
This month we venture into the Millennial “spotlight” with David Puterman, a seasoned leader, planner, and advocate for a variety of social change initiatives and programs. David has conducted research on the engagement of young adults in charitable and not-for-profit organizations. He provides some great insights such as how to bring young staff, volunteers and donors into your succession planning.
Not-for-profit organizations provide essential services in very complex environments and therefore require high performing staff and boards to achieve meaningful and measurable results. We need a range of core competencies to improve organizational performance – strong leaders with a strategic outlook; boards that govern wisely; and staff that are motivated and encouraged to make a career in the sector.
