Bringing Professional Development to Organizations in Perth and Huron
United Way Perth-Huron is once again offering the Non Profit Professional Development Series in both Perth and Huron Counties; ensuring local organizations have affordable access to professional development. Workshops are hosted at the Huron County Health Unit in Clinton, and the University of Waterloo, in Stratford. Libro Credit Union is pleased to continue their community partnership as the generous sponsor of this constructive series.
“United Way is committed to collaboratively helping supported and community partners strengthen the quality and impact of programs and services available to the community. We know how prohibitive the cost of many workshops can be, especially once you add in the travel component”, commented Ryan Erb, Executive Director. “We are proud to bring workshops to our local area that focus directly on our industry and are of help to staff, management and volunteers alike.”
“These workshops are open to the general public and nonprofit alike. Example scenarios used in workshops may be nonprofit specific, however any member of the community will benefit from skills acquired here and are encouraged to register”, shared Susan Faber, the series organizer. Workshops range from Creating a Communications Strategy to Improving Your Organizations Performance, and are facilitated by Fanshawe College and PF Solution instructors.
