  • Missouri Community Betterment to Host "Strengthening Your Organization" Workshop

    Perry, MO, May 10, 2017: Each year Missouri Community Betterment (MCB) hosts 6 (six) Regional Meetings throughout the state that are open to anyone who wishes to attend. An educational program will be presented this year on “Strengthening Your Organization”. The meeting will be held at 42494 Delaware Lane, Perry, MO on May 10, 2017 from 1:30-4:30 p.m.
    The workshop goals;

    • Provide you with an opportunity to do an inventory of your current organizational practices;
    • Give you tools to do a self-assessment of your organization’s strengths as well as areas of potential improvement;
    • Provide you with the resources to leave the session with an initial draft plan on next steps to increase your organization’s ability to successfully accomplish more through expanded partnerships and expanded funding resources.

    This three-hour interactive workshop will include numerous checklists and worksheets that you will be able to take back to your community to utilize with your fellow community leaders/volunteers.
    Topics covered include:

    • Organizational structure checklist
    • Who do you partner with now? How could you increase “leveraging” those partner resources?
    • Inventory of your current funding sources; what funding options are you missing and who will pursue them?
    • Who will write our grants? (Can you write grants with your current volunteer skill base? If you need help, who can you recruit to provide assistance)

    Facilitator for this session will be John R. Gulick, Community Development Specialist, with University of Missouri Extension. John has been affiliated with MCB for 35 years as a resource partner, community visit judge, and for the past five years as a MCBEF board member.
