Workshop on Change Management for Nonprofits on June 13th

We are pleased to welcome back Anne L. Morisseau, CCMP, with another workshop on change management. When we experience changes in our personal and professional lives, we also go through a procession of stages called the change curve.  Both small and large changes may cause us to enter a dip and disengage or lose productivity. 

Attend the upcoming JCF seminar June 13, 2018 from 3pm to 5pm at the Jefferson County Public Library in Port Hadlock.  RSVP to debbisteele@jcfgives.org.

  • ALL nonprofits in Jefferson County are invited to submit proposals, not only traditional UGN partners;

  • There will also be an online Giving Catalog where the public will be invited to donate directly to YOUR ORGANIZATION during the month of October 2018.
