January’s Panel Discussion: An Overview
On Monday NeXtGen sat down to tackle a ubiquitous topic in the non-profit sector: doing more with less. Joining us with their expertise in social services were Steve Hoffman, Executive Director of CANI, and Debby Beckman, CEO of the YWCA.
As the panelists responded to questions, some themes began to emerge. Although the current economic climate certainly presents special challenges to social service agencies, Steve and Debby agreed that change is constant in the field. The response, rather than the change itself, is what is important.
What should a CEO or Executive Director keep in mind when facing cut-backs in staffing and programming? Our panelists both spoke about the priority of organizational health and vitality. Social service non-profits are strengthening their organizations by seeking to diversify funding streams, exploring fee-for-service options, and keeping services that meet the needs of clients as well as the mission of the agency.
Thank you to Debby Beckman and Steve Hoffman for sharing their time and insights!
