The Road to Sustainability

September 10, 2014
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Conyers, GA

Program sustainability is often thought to exclusively mean raising money. But money is only part of the equation. Raising money depends on having a quality program and demonstrating results. And showing effective results, in turn, is based on strong management practices. As such, getting to sustainability requires a carefully constructed plan, a vision, and a broad base of support.

This workshop addresses several key facets of sustainability that in combination, will lay the groundwork for ensuring your program continues on a long-term basis. Through an array of interactive and hands-on experiences, participants will gain knowledge, skills, and resources in three fundamental areas of sustainability: building collaboration, advocating for support, and finding funding.

*All of these courses have been approved for 5.75 core continuing education clock hours by NASW-GA.*
