On July 24th the Center for New Leadership at Marlboro College hosted the second annual Nonprofit Management Summer Camp. 55 nonprofit “campers” converged on Brattleboro from far and wide, representing Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Washington DC, Maryland, and Vermont.
Campers spent the day making new professional connections and taking part in high-impact workshops. Topics included Breaking up the Meeting, Difficult Conversations, Volunteer Management, Online Fundraising and Crowdsourcing, and Leading From Your Strengths.
A new workshop in Creative Ways to Gather Data was offered based on requests received from alumni campers for data collection training. Hillary Boone and Shelagh Cooley of Benchmarks for a Better Vermont worked collaboratively to develop the 90-minute workshop that introduced tools such as the rubric, the most significant change, and road maps. Feedback was positive, and the workshop is ready to be rolled out to other groups upon request.
The Center for New Leadership at Marlboro College is a community focused on exploring and applying new approaches to leadership. Applying the expertise of Marlboro’s graduate programs, we teach transformational practices that build capacity in the mission-driven sector through leadership development experiences, community trainings, and customized in-house programs.
