Is strategic planning on your radar for 2024? Do you need to clarify the strategic direction of your organization and the strategies that will be used to achieve your vision while also ensuring organizational health and sustainability? If you answered yes, join this three-part webinar series that will set you on the path to developing a plan that doesn't sit on a shelf collecting dust! Strategic planning aligns your people and resources around a plan to achieve your mission.

Utah Nonprofits Association is excited to partner with Nonprofit Association of Washington in this three-part series virtual workshop, Strategic Planning in Nonprofits.

The series will be anchored with Strategic Planning in Nonprofits (SPiN), a toolkit developed by Nonprofit Association of Washington to make strategic planning accessible and manageable for you, your board, and your staff. Over the course of three 90-minute webinars, and some suggested "homework" in between sessions, we will review the six phases in the planning process, and you will leave with the tools and confidence to develop a strategic plan for your organization. At the end, you'll have tips and tools to help you start your term with confidence and enthusiasm!
