Management 101

During this boot camp Summit session you’ll be introduced or re-introduced to core risk management principles and practical management strategies and techniques. After our intellectual “warm up” the camp will turn to real-life risk management challenges with the opportunity for active participation. No sit-ups, we promise. Working in small groups we will tackle some of the toughest challenges facing nonprofits today and tap the “wisdom of crowds” to identify practical solutions. The format for this boot camp will be one that you can adapt for use in your own organization.

Boot Camp

 &O, CGL, professional liability, non-owned auto, business D interruption, and crime coverage are just a few examples of insurance policies commonly purchased by nonprofit organizations. Depending on the mission, the environment, and the services provided, a nonprofit’s insurance program takes different forms—there is no one-size-fits-all answer. And the components of an appropriate insurance program change over time as the nonprofit’s programming changes and the organization grows in size or scope. This fast-paced workshop will offer a quick study of key insurance topics, including how to understand an insurance policy and an overview of the policies commonly purchased by nonprofit organizations. You’ll leave this workshop with a clear picture of what to look for in the coverage

 onprofit organizations often provide transportation services as N an adjunct to recreation programs or social or educational services delivery. Others offer transportation as a core function. Whether the hiring of drivers and purchase or use of vehicles are reflected in a long-range plan or exemplify “organic” growth, when you’ve got vehicles and drivers, you’ve got transportation risk. This workshop will explore proven strategies for keeping your transportation exposures off the shoulder and back in the line of traffic. Featuring: Nick Schneider, Riverport Insurance

When insurance consultants take a close-up look at a nonprofit’s insurance policies it’s not unusual to find a host of errors and potential problems. With policies chock full of legal jargon it’s not surprising that insurance consumers often miss the trouble spots. Attend this session to learn about common coverage mistakes and leave armed with a strategy to uncover the errors and fix what needs fixing in your nonprofit’s insurance program.

Managing Reputation Risk

What’s in a reputation? According to one source* reputation represents “50% of the median value of a public company.” What about the reputation of a nonprofit that relies on generous, committed individual and institutional donors? Your nonprofit’s “value” in the charitable marketplace may be even more reputation-dependent. Attend this session to explore the intersection between sound risk management and reputation stewardship. Learn what steps and strategies are in order before your reputation is tarnished, in the midst of a crisis, and while the flood waters are receding.

(C) B E  ffective Risk Communication: Say What? The pressure on nonprofit leaders to explain their motives and actions to stakeholders has never been greater. Sustainability increasingly depends on the ability to lead through communicating.

This presentation will offer practical tips to improve the communication of difficult concepts, news, feedback and more. The speaker will offer suggestions for strengthening interpersonal and group communication, listening techniques, overcoming communication apprehension, conducting effective meetings, message analysis and development, vocal and physical delivery, and communicating under pressure.

(C) A ERM Lessons and Tools “Enterprise Risk Management” sounds expensive, timeconsuming, out of reach and even a bit technical. Yet according to author Michael Power, ERM “…should be understood as referring to any broadly based conception of risk management… It signifies any aspiration for a form of risk management practice which is all encompassing in scope, business-focused, and is suggestive of a bird’s eye view of organizational life.” Attend this informal but informative roundtable to share your experiences, success stories and questions. The facilitator will begin with a survey of ERM lessons and tools and continue by leading a discussion of how ERM can be brought to life (without exhausting available resources) in a nonprofit.

(CON) C (4TH FLR) Inspired Governance The subject of “good governance” has garnered great attention and interest from the boards of the largest publicly traded corporations to small, mid-sized and large nonprofits, not to mention the regulatory agencies that exercise oversight authority. Yet in many cases the board and staff’s understanding of what constitutes “good governance” is too narrowly focused on the importance of having a handful of policies in place. Attend this fast-paced session led by the Center’s Executive Director to explore a new interpretation of what it means to govern effectively. This session will explore “hallmarks” of effective governance and offer practical examples that can be adapted to suit the needs of even the most “unique” organization.
