An Introduction to the Nonprofit Sector

Whether you are heading a fledgling nonprofit, have just started a job at a local nonprofit, have accepted a board position, or are investigating the sector for employment or consulting, this introduction will ensure you get off on the right foot.  Discover why the sector exists, how nonprofits focus on their responsibilities to the community, and how they measure success in terms of impact delivered rather than stockholder profits.

A healthy, effective board is central to achieving your nonprofit's mission.  Attendees will be educated on the legal and fiduciary responsibilities of board members, create a framework for nonprofit leadership, and understand the importance of an engaged and focused board.  This session is a great orientation for any board and its members, but will particularly benefit new board members, new organizations or organizations without paid staff.

About Me:  Kevin P. Dincher

I have a 40-year track record that includes organization and strategic consulting with non-profits, both big and small, as well as small family-owned business and Fortune 500 global technology companies.  Currently, the primary focus of my work is on nonprofit organizations through a partnership with Professionals in Philanthropy

My experience also includes work in, counseling psychology and crisis management, program and operations management, nonprofit management, human resources, and education.

One of the things that energizes me is learning new things and sharing what I learn.  In addition to providing professional development, I create exciting and enriching educational opportunities for adults that incorporate psychology, philosophy, history, historical anthropology and more—with a perspective that “everything’s related.”  My broad background in psychology, philosophy and theology along with my deep interest in history, sociology, politics and organizational systems have given me the perspective that nothing ever really happens in isolation.  Ideas, decisions, actions and events all occur in a web of other interrelated ideas, decisions, actions and events.  I enjoy pulling connecting threads to see where they lead – and if you don’t come away from my classes and lectures asking more questions than you started with, I haven’t done my job!
