Do you love the outdoors? Do you want to learn about outdoor recreational opportunities in the region? 

Join Community Council’s Study Committee on Tuesday, September 16th from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm at the YWCA, 213 S 1st Ave., Walla Walla. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

The Committee, chaired by Adam Kirtley, will study, “How can we promote, enhance and develop outdoor recreational opportunities and accessibility to improve the region’s economic vitality and quality of life?” According to the USDA, in order to sustain the benefits of outdoor recreation for present and future generations, the recreation program must address and work toward a sustainable balance among the three spheres of environmental, social, and economic conditions.
Please join us!

9/19: Storytelling for Action: Talking with Policymakers (101) (Online)
With Marty Arellano & Lara Sims

In partnership with Community Action Partnerships/ Statewide Poverty Action Network
Nonprofits move forward a mission within a context of a bigger cause, a broader policy environment, and a deeper set of individuals who could help if the right relationships were in place.  Legislators, their staff, and other people of influence  have the potential to unlock funding or guide policy if they were to better understand the stories of nonprofits and the people with whom those organizations work.  

9-23-14 Using Skilled Voluntters (Online)

9/23: Using Skilled Volunteers (Online) With Nancy Long
In partnership with 501 Commons, Volunteer Centers of Washington
Using volunteers in skills-based roles can provide enormous benefits. Skilled volunteers can offer insight and expertise and add to our capacity to tackle challenges staff does not have the time to take on. But the tools and approaches we use for program volunteers will not work for skills-based roles. Join us for an interactive and informative session on how to effectively engage skilled volunteers. Participants will learn how to recruit, screen, and match volunteers into skills-based volunteer opportunities.

Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits (FUN) represents a departure from existing board trainings. It expands what board members know and can do related nonprofit finance through BINGO cards, video shorts featuring a Jet City Improv actor, and supporting informational kits. Join us as we share FUN resources and talk about how to use them within your organization.
