Coming Monday, June 13!
The Nonprofit Chamber of Palm Beach County Annual Conference
YOU’RE IN CHARGE . . . WHAT NOW?
Staff members who are great at their current roles often move up the ladder within an organization. But are they truly prepared for a promotion into a leadership role? Do they know how to manage or lead others successfully?
This fast-paced conference will energize you with a combination of serious leadership training information and targeted humor. The target audience is the “Work Leader,” those who have a leadership title and role, whether it’s a new position or not. These CEOs, EDs and VPs are expected to roll up their sleeves and contribute a healthy dose of work daily, all while managing and leading others and overseeing the operation.
Many nonprofits rarely have the luxury or take the time to help staff transition into that role of manager and leader. You’ll leave this conference with solid information on how to do just that. Bring Your Leadership Staff!
And. . . Keynote Speaker Robert Lupton,
author of “Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help, And How to Reverse It.”
Veteran urban activist Robert Lupton reveals the shockingly toxic effects that modern charity has upon the very people meant to benefit from it. Toxic Charity provides proven new models for charitable groups who want to help—not sabotage—those whom they desire to serve.

Chamber Expands Membership Opportunities
Arts and cultural nonprofits and those focusing on animal causes can now join the Nonprofit Chamber. Until now, only health and human services nonprofits qualified for membership, but the board felt that other nonprofits could benefit from the discussions, conferences and information presented at Chamber meetings. “We all encounter the same types of issues regarding human resource management, finances, fund-raising, advocacy, and other internal matters,” explained Marlene Passell, Chamber manager. Because the organization was focused on its mission and growing membership, it initially kept membership within the health and human services arena. “But we receive requests regularly from other organizations and we are now prepared for that growth,” Ms. Passell added.
Additionally, start-up nonprofits with budgets of $100,000 or less can request scholarships to cover the first year’s $200 membership cost. Other categories of membership have also been added to allow funding organizations and those seeking to sponsor events or meetings to become involved with the Chamber.
