In 1994, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) became the first state association of nonprofits to develop a set of accountability principles and management practices. The 11 accountability principles distinguish the nonprofit sector from government and the business sector. The 192 management practices provide specific guidelines for individual organizations to evaluate and improve their operations, governance, human resources, advocacy, financial management, and fundraising. The Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence are meant to educate nonprofit leaders, board members, managers, volunteers, and staff about the fundamental roles and responsibilities of nonprofit organizations.
This event includes an overview of the Principles and Practices resource along with a facilitated discussion on how to use these ideas within an organization.
The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team and sponsored by the Bush Foundation to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here! Each event will have a short presentation along with plenty of time for networking and discussion on the designated topic. Bring your questions and expertise on the topic! With our cameras and microphones on, we can stay connected, learn, and support one another.
