In uncertain economic times, Board of Directors and Executive Directors of nonprofit organizations need accurate economic information to strategically plan for the short-term and long-term financial direction of the organization.
Susan Ockert, Senior Research Economist of the Census and Economic Information Center for the Montana Department of Commerce, will present the economic trends in the Flathead and the nonprofit community.
This session will be a facilitated dialogue as a follow up from the January 2009 discussion on the health of the Flathead’s nonprofit sector in these economic times.
Come to share your experience, and exchange ideas on how to increase revenue, decrease expenses, and plan for the long term.
