We are celebrating 25 years in Atlanta with a day-long capacity building training. Training Works: A Day of Capacity Building will be Friday, September 20. The day will include social sector capacity building training, nonprofit impact workshops, and funder networking activities. We created this training based on participant feedback to help you scale your expertise and gain insights to increase your impact. The day will include three tracks: governance, strategic and fundraising planning, and nonprofit leadership. 

We are so excited to announce some of the amazing speakers and presenters we have scheduled. The day will start with opening remarks from Charmaine Ward-Millner, the Corporate Relations Director for Georgia Power. Charmaine is responsible for building and maintaining key state and national relationships with diverse organizations and opinion leaders. Her efforts focus on forming strategic alliances with diverse segments of the company’s 2.5 million customers, corporate partners, and civic organizations to garner support and promote advocacy for important industry and company issues. 

Along with Charmaine, our welcome session includes presenters from consulting firms like Coaching Catalyst, Hass Consulting, The Hodge Group, Inter-Resilience, and Susannah Darrow Consulting. We are also looking forward to sessions presented by other nonprofit organizations like Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, BW3: Black Women, Wise Women, and The Amplifiers.

The day will also include a Grantmaker Meets the Changemaker Networking Lunch where participants will have the opportunity to meet with funders such as Coxe Curry & Associates, The Community Foundation of Northeast Georgia, and Georgia-Pacific Foundation. Participants will have the incredible opportunity to have lunch with funders in an intimate, informal setting. This is a great opportunity to network and learn more about what funders are looking for.

This training day is for the entire Atlanta nonprofit community! Participants will learn capacity-building strategies to increase their organization's impact. They will also gain resources to improve governance, strategic and fundraising planning, and nonprofit leadership while connecting to the Atlanta nonprofit community and other social sector professionals.
