You know how important is it to bring your team together to build relationships and create an environment that encourages collaboration and teamwork. Improv is an art form that has the power to teach tremendous lessons and energize participants through play. Workshop participants build listening skills, learn to think on their feet, shift their thinking to help the group before themselves, and learn to trust each other in a whole new way.  "Yes, and" are the two most important words in Improv. By saying Yes you are accepting the contributions of others. With And, you are adding your own ideas. These two steps allow participants to create together, rather than arguing over little details. While simple in theory, people are combative by nature. “Yes, and” helps your team lose that combativeness and negativity, and focus on building a positive, supportive and creative working environment. Through a series of warmup exercises, professional instructors tear down any nerves or reservations your team may have. Participants then learn basic improv skills, improv games, and how these lessons are applicable to their work environment. This workshop encourages creativity and teammate support while using laughter as a key factor.

Nonprofit overhead expenses distract us from what the nonprofit sector really needs to be talking about: Full costs.   In this session, Claire Knowlton, Director of AdvisoryServices at Nonprofit Finance Fund, shows that nonprofits can’t limit their donor-asks to covering operating costs and overhead expenses. Nonprofits must also seek funding that fulfills organizations’ need for working capital, financial reserves, debt repayment and fixed asset additions such as equipment. This long-term reinvestment prevents crises and interrupted services. Dinner is included with your registration
