It’s time to make your website magical! Becoming a website wizard is only a few broom sticks away. Fortunately, you do not have to conjure up fancy HTML codes or be Harry Potter to master Web design.

mean the difference between receiving a $5.00 donations and receiving a $500.00 donation. Issues discussed during this presentation will include: Web site design, the importance of transparency and privacy, content management, and Web site vs. social media. Magically
effective will be a supernatural presentation that your organization cannot afford to miss!

Jon Honstadt — Transparency and Accountability
Transparency and accountability is becoming one of the biggest talked about subjects in the nonprofit sector. For the nonprofit world transparency is means financial accountability, openness to the public about missions or programs and the overall governance of the organization. Making information available easily and clearly to the public is important to nonprofits because nonprofits get most of their funds and resources from the public or government. These groups want to know that the resources they are giving out are used efficiently and appropriately. This presentation will look at what directly needs to be made public and the reasons behind that transparency.
