Those of us working in the nonprofit sector are trying to tackle some of the world’s most difficult problems. In order to be most effective in fulfilling our personal and organizational missions, we need to be continuously learning and developing our skills as leaders and managers.
However, it can be difficult to find the time and money to invest in professional development. We all know that nonprofit organizations tend to be chronically under-resourced, which means that regardless of the merits of professional development, you’ll need to justify the expense to your organization, whether it comes in the form of paid time off or financial support for your attendance.
This toolkit provides tips and resources that can help you make the case for attending the 2017 YNPN National Conference & Leaders Institute.
The toolkit includes:
- General tips for justifying conference attendance and expense
- Information on how to calculate the ROI of conference attendance
- Template for a justification letter for your supervisor
