We’re looking forward to completing the last leg of our Annenberg Alchemy seminar this coming June. We attended the first two sessions this past March at the Science Center.
We were thrilled when we found out earlier this year that RuckusRoots had been chosen to participate in this year’s annual Annenberg Alchemy seminar. The seminar consists of 3 days: two full days of training and an ‘Anthology Review Day’ approximately 90 days later. This 90 Day period allows the program attendees to implement the lessons learned. Critical issues covered are fundraising, board effectiveness, civic engagement and accountability.
This prestigious non profit seminar focuses on the working relationship and communication between the Executive Director and the Board Chair, more specifically the alignment of both parties goals, roles and responsibilities in relation to each other and how that provides the catalyst for change for the overall organization.
To be accepted into Annenberg Alchemy, they require your organization has been serving the needs of the local community for at least three years, with the same Executive Director in place for two or more years, and operating with an annual budget of $5 million or less. Check, check and check!
We’re looking forward to completing the last leg of our Annenberg Alchemy seminar this coming June. After attending the first two sessions this past March at the Science Center, we’re sure that we’ll make a lot more good connections and take the invaluable tools Annenberg gave us to better RuckusRoots in every way!
