PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Hello Friends,

It’s hard to believe that summer is around the corner!  We've had a wonderful year at ADO.  Great programs, a lot of new members, and new tools for your tool belts.

My term as President ends next month.  Needless to say it, has been an amazing 2 years.  I have had the pleasure of working with the finest people in the nonprofit community.  I have learned a lot, and most of all I have made many new friends!

The future of ADO remains very bright and we are going to continue to be a force to be reckoned with.  Make sure you utilize the resources we make available to you.  They are valuable and will help you succeed and help your organization grow.

Be sure to attend our final workshop of the 2018-19 program year later this month, as well as a free summer networking event on June 18th at Scarsdale Country Club.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Onward We Go!

Best,  Adam

WHAT’S ON YOUR BOOKSHELF?

101 Biggest Mistakes Nonprofits Make and How You Can Avoid Them by Andrew Olsen

From the author:
In 101 Biggest Mistakes Nonprofits Make and How You Can Avoid Them, you’ll hear directly from industry veterans who have over 300 years of combined experience inside nonprofit organizations and leading consulting firms serving nonprofits. They are experts in strategic planning, government relations, leadership, finance and administration, program development, marketing, and philanthropy. Contrary to what the title might suggest, this book is NOT an admonishment of the nonprofit sector and those who make their career within it. Far from it. I know that one of the least-funded areas in the nonprofit sector is staff training and development. That is at the core of what brought me to envision this book, to assemble this group of expert contributors, and to bring this work to market. Everyone makes mistakes, whether you work in the nonprofit sector, the commercial sector, or anywhere in between.

MEMBER ARTICLE

TEXT MARKETING FOR NON-PROFITS: THE FUTURE IS NOW!

by ADO member Frank Cipolla, ConnectionText

Work in the non-profit world is hard! There…. I said it. Do I hear any arguments? I didn’t think so.

From daily operations, marketing, community outreach, event planning, event execution, fundraising, strict and ever-changing guidelines and regulations … the list can go on forever. So YES we all know the massive effort it takes to accomplish your organization’s mission. As an outside vendor and partner, we cannot begin to comprehend the day-to-day stress and activity that goes into end results. BUT we CAN help make it easier and more convenient… read more
