Body Heat Like a tantalizing mirage, film noir haunts modern filmmakers. Noir is the genre of the night, guilt, violence and illicit passion, and no genre is more seductive. And yet, if bad modern noir can play like a parody, good noir still has the power to seduce. Lawrence Kasdan's Body Heat has a power that transcends its previous B movie sources. Kathleen Turner, who in her debut role, played a woman so sexually confident that we can believe her lover, played by a relatively unknown William Hurt, could be dazzled into doing almost anything for her, including murder. Class will discuss how character motivations drive a storyline, the impact protagonist and anatonist relationships have when creating story, plus a scene-by-scene analysis of how the main plot and subplots come together so beautifully in this film to create classic noir. 10/8

Board Governance

Within the nonprofit board’s roles of setting direction, providing oversight and ensuring necessary resources, board members wear many hats. They are policy makers, ambassadors, advocates, fundraisers partners with the chief executive and strategic thinkers. Because of the many roles, board members need more than enthusiasm for a cause. They need to understand all of their stewardship responsibilities and perform all of their duties. This course will look at the bigger picture of governance and highlight: • Trends impacting governance & fundraising in the nonprofit sector • Legal obligations of nonprofit boards • Best practices surrounding board roles and responsibilities • The stages of board evolution that impact board performance and why some nonprofits confuse volunteering with governance • Recruiting, articulating your nonprofit’s value to the community and how ever single board member can be a great fundraiser. While individual board members and staff will benefit from this training, having staff and board members from the same organization attend will enhance the experience. 10/6 IOP112.6

FALL 2011 THINK AGAIN

$ and Sense Series

Have you ever had a meeting with a donor take an unexpected turn? As you develop relationships with potential donors or steward your existing donors, you need to be nimble and think on your feet. Despite all of your preparation and scripting for your meetings, the unexpected is bound to happen. This interactive series of classes uses “improv” techniques to help you prepare and better react to the unexpected.

#1, Powered by Positive

This series begins with Powered by Positive. The positive position of acceptance is an important idea in improvisation. Accepting helps us establish, build and achieve success. Understanding this primary improv tool and applying it in an improvisational format can enhance our thinking process and motivate others to do the same. During this interactive class, students will learn how to use the basic rule of improve and how a simple "Yes, and..." can advance projects, plans and people. This class will examine the ideas of offers, openness, and optimism (OH my!). 9/30 IOP112.13

#2, Know Your Character

The series continues with Know Your Character. We all play different roles within our lives. As development professionals, the parts we play depend on those with whom we interact. To know your audience is to know your character; and to know their story is to know your

role. Knowing your audience will create and develop awareness, trust and stronger relationships as you steward your donors. Through this high energy class, students will learn to identify interactive roles when relating to or working with prospective and current donors by incorporating elements of improvisation. This course will use improv exercises to help students determine the motives of donors. 10/7 IOP112.12

F 9A-12P James Wasilewski

#3, The Development “Plot”

$85

The final class in the series is Development “Plot”. There is a basic formula with essential elements to create the plot of a story or scene. Those same elements could be used to describe the stewardship path for a donor. This fast paced, fun class will use improvisational concepts - identify challenges, establish meaningful connections, and experience a transformational moment between you and your donor. • Students will explore a unique perspective of cultivating a donor through an engaging, improvisational experience. • The course will help students assess the needs for a “story” and increase retention of needed “elements” to complete the “plot”. • You will learn how improvisation, development, and the formulaic plot help enrich visioning and problemsolving as you steward your donors. 10/14 IOP112.11

Grant Writing classes Outcome Measures

How do you know you have met your mission, served your audience well, met goals (fundraising and overall organizational), and know best how to move forward? Today, outcome measurement is the best tool for internal success and a prerequisite for external advancement and greater financial support. Board members, managers, development staff and volunteers can benefit from this presentation of a broad range of strategies and options for outcome measurement by a professional with comprehensive management and development experience across the sector: arts and culture, health and human service, public-private partnerships, large and small organizations. 11/4&11 IOP112.4
