"Emerging Issues" Seminar to Focus on Performance Measurement and Management in Nonprofits – RSVP today

The next installment of the University at Albany's seminar series, Emerging Issues in the Nonprofit Sector, is slated for Friday, December 13 at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany, 405 Washington Ave., Albany, NY.

As the nonprofit sector has grown in size and economic importance, so too has demand for nonprofit organizations to demonstrate they are having a positive impact on the communities they serve and have the capacity to improve. The seminar will shed light on upcoming public policy changes in New York that will have a direct impact on nonprofits and it will provide program participants with information on how they can use the tools of performance measurement and management to help their organizations thrive.

New York State Senator Neil Breslin and Dr. Elizabeth Boris of the Urban Institute are the key note speakers. The program, which runs from 8:15 a.m. through 12:30 p.m., also features a panel discussion with a number of Capital Region nonprofit leaders. A light breakfast will be served.

Emerging Issues in the Nonprofit Sector is coordinated by a steering committee made up of faculty and staff from Rockefeller College, the School of Social Welfare and the School of Public Health, with the support of the University's Office of Community Engagement. Series planners rely on input and guidance from an advisory committee that includes leaders from a number of area nonprofits. Previous program topics have included mergers, collaborations and partnerships; governance in the nonprofit and voluntary sector; and the impact of the Affordable Care Act on nonprofits.
