Did you attend the 2011 ACHANGE symposium luncheon and wish you could have spent time with the luncheon speaker to learn more about strategic underwriting of your organization? Back by popular demand Dione Alexander, VP, Nonprofit Finance Fund (2011 keynote speaker) will provide a one day workshop specifically designed to help you re‐ conceptualize your organization in today’s economy.
Beyond Bricks is an interactive session designed to guide aﬀordable housing providers through an assessment of both the impact and profitability of their programming and frame strategies and scenarios to address the capital and capacity needed to achieve their aspirations for change and growth. Highlights of the Day: "I Am From" (an exercise in storytelling) All organizations need a way to frame their story that is less about the technical or statistical achievement and more about the compelling ways in which lives and communities are aﬀected. Mission drives motives; reconnecting with why you as an organization exist is the first step in planning for the future.
Impact Assessment Participants will build a matrix that plots their core activities in terms of impact and profitability and will develop some strategies and scenarios for contracting, expanding, or changing programming to both strengthen their organization and their community.
Case Study Participants will be led in a case study exercise and dialogue that focuses on an aﬀord‐ able housing provider that substantially changed its business model. The case study will also provide opportunity to learn and share information about new tools and resources in the industry.
