A group of nonprofits are teaming up to put on a series of workshops and classes for nonprofits slated to begin in September.

The workshops are aimed at sharing information with nonprofit agencies to help them obtain the funding they need to sustain their organizations. The nonprofits teaming up to put on the series are Hospital Authority of Rockdale County, the Rockdale Coalition for Children and Families, Rockdale County Government, Rockdale County School System, and United Way in Rockdale.

The cost is $30 per session, or $25 per session if paying in advance for all four sessions. The registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch and educational materials. Agencies represented at all four sessions will receive a certificate of completion. All sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Drive, Conyers.

The first session, scheduled for September 11, is entitled: “Key Information Every Nonprofit Executive Needs for Their Agency to Thrive.”  Experts will offer advice in the following areas:

Getting Your Nonprofit Business Ready to Succeed in a Recovering Economy
Creating a Resource Development Plan
Understanding the Link Between Collaboration and Success
Writing a Winning Grant Proposal
Measuring Success

Additional sessions are scheduled for December 11, 2012; March 12, 2013; and June 11, 2013. The December session will focus on organizational development, with specific agenda items to be determined based on a group discussion during Session I. The focus of the March session will be resource development, with specific agenda items to be determined based on a group discussion during Session II. The final session in the series will include a panel discussion featuring grant-makers from throughout the region, followed by small break-out workshops.
