Designing a Standard Operating Procedures Manual for Your Nonprofit: Improve Daily Operations and Further Your Mission

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Organization Name: 
Event Topic: 

In addition to work performed in support of your nonprofit’s mission, your nonprofit, its employees, staff and volunteers perform a number of important, and often overlooked tasks on a daily basis. Some of these tasks are performed according to unwritten rules and practices while other tasks are too often performed on informal and inconsistent “spur of the moment” decision making processes. Adopting a written standard operating procedures manual can establish uniformity to the running of your nonprofit and make sure that everyone is on the same page.

Please join Chris Martinez as he discusses standard operating procedures manuals and how they can benefit your nonprofit by cutting down on confusion and questions regarding daily tasks. A well drafted standard operating procedures manual will effectively answer questions before they arise and hopefully lead to a better run nonprofit.

What You'll Learn

Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Define standard operating procedure manuals and how they can benefit your nonprofit

  • Cover the contents of the policy, addressing such topics as how your public relations, social media presence, donor relations, and volunteer/staff orientation can all benefit from standard operating procedures

  • Discuss the next steps in implementing the manual once it has been drafted and approved by your nonprofit board
