Organizational Resiliency

Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

Continuity Planning helps organizations fulfill a social responsibility to protect their patrons, community, and employees when things go awry.  We will focus on sustaining delivery of services essential to your clients, even in the worst of times.   How can your agency, non-profit, or tribal entity quickly resume functioning and deliver the services critical to your mission?   How would you respond to a major earthquake, a devastating computer virus, pandemic disease, widespread flooding, or the sudden departure of your executive director?  What can you do now to build a more resilient organization?  Emergency managers from state and local entities, non-profits, and the tribes will help us explore these issues.  Resources provided will allow participants to complete EMI certifications sought by many employers.

 This course will provide an overview of fund development strategies for cultural and heritage resources.  Content will include how to research and make application to a diverse array of funding sources, including federal, state, tribal, and private funding sources.  The course will also explore key elements to building collaborative partnerships and financial accountability to funding sources.  Although course content will not be limited to work in the non-profit sector, the course will include aspects of non-profit development that can apply across a wide spectrum of public service work.
