Workshop topics include: How to Maximize Volunteers’ Time and Engagement; Nonprofit Outcomes: Finding Measurements That Matter; HR: Reviews, Development and Staffing to Keep and Grow the Right Staff; Social Media and Marketing: Picking the Right Tool; and Finding the Elusive Money Tree: Growing New Sponsors in a Tough Economy.

CTI will culminate with a luncheon presentation of the 57th awards program of the Women’s Council. Award recipients include: Distinguished Public Service – Lisa Hembry, CEO, LIFT; Member Organization – Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity; Individual Member – Sharon King, VP, CCCS; and Woman of the Year – Jennifer Sampson, CEO, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
