Presentation Visuals that Work (WEBINAR)Thursday and Friday March 1–2 from 10–11 a.m.
Bullets are not only dangerous in guns. Although your presence and preparation make a huge impact on the success of a presentation’s ability to inform and persuade, bad visuals can undermine your message. In fact, PowerPoint itself may have taught us bad habits. This class will help you create visuals that will make your facts, stories and ideas stick with your audience.

Minimizing Risk Via Social Media Policies (WEBINAR)Wednesday and Thursday March 21–22 from 10–11 a.m.
Social media is a hot topic in nonprofits. It provides real-time communication among your staff, volunteers, consumers, clients, students, and constituents. Without social media policies, however, anyone might speak on your organization’s behalf, potentially opening up your nonprofit to liability. In this class, the key components of a social media HR policy will be explained. In addition, you’ll learn how risk management and insurance policies for nonprofits can help protect the organization as well as cover potential liabilities caused by social media. Various types of insurance options for nonprofits that address social media will be discussed and explained as well as discussion on common mistakes that can lead to a claim. Online resources and examples of social media policies and insurance policies will be shared.
Instructors: Todd Whiteman, Enscoe Long Insurance Group; Dave Tinker, CFRE, ACHIEVA
