Free workshop for nonprofits

January 31, 2019

All non-profit organization board members and staff are invited to attend a free workshop on Nonprofit Lifecycles: Introduction to Organization Self-Assessment. Hosted by the City of Kelowna, the workshop will be on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

“Through the enhancement of board governance and organizational capacity we’re able to help strengthen the non-profit sector and the services offered to community residents,” said Christine McWillis, Cultural Services Manager. “We’ve been hosting a variety of workshops like this since 2013 and have received great feedback from the organizations.”

By the end of this year’s full-day workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the seven stages of organizational lifecycle and identify the five areas of organizational capacity
  • Identify the benefits of applying the lifecycle lens and capacity framework to improve mission impact and program delivery
  • Self-assess their organization or program’s current stage using the Nonprofit Lifecycle Selfie tool
  • Identify realistic, concrete steps the organization can take to build capacity in governance, management, financial resources and/or administrative systems

The workshop is open to all Kelowna based nonprofit organizations including sports, social development or arts, culture and heritage. While it’s free to attend, registration is required as space is limited. Interested participants can register at
