Transparency is no longer optional | Risk Management 101 | The importance of your Brand
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 - Montréal, Quebec
The charitable and nonprofit sector is known for its collaborative nature. We’ve seen many stellar examples of organizations partnering with other organizations, businesses and governments to enrich our lives, raise social issues and advance societal causes. As the environment in which partnerships come together and are conducted is continually evolving, it is important for all of us to understand the key issues that our partnerships face in order to ensure their success. Join us for a one day francophone forum focusing on helpful tools for charities and nonprofit organisations.
This year will focus on the following themes:
- Transparency is no longer optional
- Risk Management 101
- The importance of your Brand
