PITTSBORO-- Chatham LIVE - Lead, Inspire, Volunteer, and Empower - is the name of the nonprofit leadership workshop set that will be held Thursday, March 19, in Pittsboro. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Chatham Community Library's Holmes Conference Room in Pittsboro.
As a non-profit itself, Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) - through its Department of Economic and Community Development in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties - is offering the workshop. The event is sponsored by the Chatham Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Chatham County, the Triangle Community Foundation, and Chatham County.
The workshop features Leslie Crutchfield, who is co-author of "Forces for Good - The Six Practices of High-Impact Nonprofits." The first 50 organizations to register receive a free copy of "Forces for Good."
"We have a vested interest in strengthening nonprofit organizations," said Carl Thompson, CCCC's Director of Continuing Education in Chatham County. "Being a nonprofit institution itself, the college seeks to serve clients in our three-county area as efficiently as we can. A critical part of our mission is to help develop the skills and provide current knowledge of best practices to nonprofits in our service area. By assisting community development organizations like nonprofits to better serve their clients, we improve the quality of life in the communities we serve."
Cost of the workshop is $30, with lunch included. A limited number of scholarships are available for agencies that cannot afford the registration fee.
